Review

I love this book and look forward to using it as a text in the future ... It's the first truly modern approach that I've seen in a PDE text. --Maeve McCarthy, MAA Online

Book Description

An undergraduate course on partial differential equations is found in almost every mathematics department, and this is an important offering to any student on such a course because of its fresh approach incorporating both the modern and the traditional methods of analysing and solving partial differential equations.

I've used this book in several PDE courses aimed at engineers. It's clear, has good problems, and does an excellent job of showing the connections between partial differential equations and linear algebra. Both analytical and numerical methods are developed. I prefer this book to the competitors at this level.

The main difficulty I had using this in the classroom isn't the fault of the book. Most of the the students in my classes have been undergrad EE majors, and the book's examples are primarily from mechanics, statics, and heat transfer. The better students had no trouble, but the weaker students wanted some examples more directly connected to what they know.

The book is a great PDE reference guide. I bought the book for class, then discovered we wouldn't be using it much.

The text arrived before I expected it to. So far, it seems to be a pretty helpful textbook. Explores both traditional and numerical methods for solving PDEs.
