Overview

Partial Differential Equations and Boundary Value Problems with Maple presents all of the material normally covered in a standard course on partial differential equations, while focusing on the natural union between this material and the powerful computational software, Maple. The Maple commands are so intuitive and easy to learn, students can learn what they need to know about the software in a matter of hours- an investment that provides substantial returns. Maple's animation capabilities allow students and practitioners to see real-time displays of the solutions of partial differential equations. Maplefiles can be found on the books website.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
REVIEW OF PREVIOUS EDITION:
From Book News, Inc.
Integrating Maple V animation software and traditional topics of partial differential equations, this text discusses first and second-order differential equations, Sturm-Liouville eigenvalue problems, generalized Fourier series, the diffusion or heat equation and the wave equation in one and two spatial dimensions, the Laplace equation in two spatial dimensions, nonhomogenous versions of the diffusion and wave equations, and Laplace transform methods of solution. The CD- ROM contains real-time animations of solutions of partial differential equations using Maple V. Book News, Inc.®, Portland, OR
