Includes nearly 4,000 linear partial differential equations (PDEs) with solutions
Presents solutions of numerous problems relevant to heat and mass transfer, wave theory, hydrodynamics, aerodynamics, elasticity, acoustics, electrodynamics, diffraction theory, quantum mechanics, chemical engineering sciences, electrical engineering, and other fields
Outlines basic methods for solving various problems in science and engineering
Contains much more linear equations, problems, and solutions than any other book currently available
Provides a database of test problems for numerical and approximate analytical methods for solving linear PDEs and systems of coupled PDEs

New to the Second Edition:

More than 700 pages with 1,500+ new first-, second-, third-, fourth-, and higher-order linear equations with solutions
Systems of coupled PDEs with solutions
Some analytical methods, including decomposition methods and their applications
Includes a chapter on solving linear PDEs with Mathematica.
Many new problems, illustrative examples, tables, and figures

To accommodate different mathematical backgrounds, the authors avoid wherever possible the use of special terminology, outline some of the methods in a schematic, simplified manner, and arrange the material in increasing order of complexity.
