Partial Differential Equations
This chapter considers techniques for solving some types of partial differential equations. The solution method that is considered in this book is the separation of variables method. Linear partial differential equations can be categorized by type, similar to categorizing ordinary differential equations. However, in contrast to ordinary differential equations, for the limited number of partial differential equations considered in this book, the categorization does not affect the solution method, but rather is a reflection of the properties of the resulting solution, which itself is a result of the underlying physics.
