This is the softcover reprint of a popular book teaching the basic analytical and computational methods of partial differential equations. Standard topics such as separation of variables, Fourier analysis, maximum principles, and energy estimates are included. Prerequisites for this text are the very basics of calculus, linear algebra and ordinary differential equations. Numerical methods are included in the book to show the significance of computations in partial differential equations, and to illustrate the strong interaction between mathematical theory and numerical methods. Great care has been taken throughout the book to seek a sound balance between the analytical and numerical techniques. The authors present the material at an easy pace with exercises and projects ranging from the straightforward to the challenging. The text would be suitable for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses in mathematics and engineering, and it develops basic tools of computational science.
