Editorial Reviews


[T]his book serves as a reference for scientists, mathematicians and engineers. Any research library with strengths in these areas would do well to have this book available, as there are no others quite like it.
- E-Streams, Vol 7, No. 10, October 2004

… exceptionally well organized and clear: the form of the equation is followed by its exact solutions. … It is an easy process to locate the equation of interest. … This handbook follows in the CRC tradition of presenting a complete and usable reference. … A valuable reference work for anyone working with nonlinear partial differential equations. Summing Up: Recommended.
- Choice, June 2004, Vol. 41, No. 10

The authors are to be congratulated for somehow making this book so approachable. From the well-ordered table of contents to the clear index, this book promises to be one that will be used regularly, rather than gather dust on a shelf. Handbook of Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations is a total success from the standpoint of offering a complete, easy-to-use solution guide.
The Industrial Physicist, October/November 2004

10 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Alexei Zhurov on January 16, 2007
Format: Hardcover
It is a very rare occasion when a nonlinear partial differential equation admits an exact solution. Such cases are of the utmost importance as they enable the full and most detailed analysis of the problem concerned. This reference book contains the most extended list of nonlinear PDEs known to be solvable to date and gives not only their exact solutions but also solution methods.

It is a really good book.
