The Numerical Method of Lines: Integration of Partial Differential Equations

by William E. Schiesser
 
This is the first book on the numerical method of lines, a relatively new method for solving partial differential equations. The Numerical Method of Lines is also the first book to accommodate all major classes of partial differential equations. This is essentially an applications book for computer scientists. The author will separately offer a disk of FORTRAN 77

Overview

This is the first book on the numerical method of lines, a relatively new method for solving partial differential equations. The Numerical Method of Lines is also the first book to accommodate all major classes of partial differential equations. This is essentially an applications book for computer scientists. The author will separately offer a disk of FORTRAN 77 programs with 250 specific applications, ranging from "Shuttle Launch Simulation" to "Temperature Control of a Nuclear Fuel Rod."

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Building on recent advances in extending the computer solution of ordinary differential equations to the solution of partial differential equations, explains the numerical method of lines for use in real problems in science and engineering that involve partial differential equations too numerous and too nonlinear to be untangled by analytic methods. Shows how the principle can be applied to all the major classes of partial differential equations. Assumes an understanding of the theory of numerical methods. Annotation c.
