Description du produit
Présentation de l'éditeur
For introductory courses in Partial Differential Equations (PDEs) taken by majors in engineering, physics, and mathematics.
This example-rich text fosters a smooth transition from elementary ordinary differential equations courses to more advanced concepts in a first course on PDEs. Asmar's relaxed style and emphasis on applications make the material accessible even to students with limited exposure to topics beyond calculus. Computer use is encouraged for illustrating results and applications, but the text is also suitable for use without computer access. The Second Edition has added more engineering and physics applications; more optional mathematical proofs; a new chapter on Green's Theorem and Conformal Mappings; and more geometric presentations throughout.

My one complaint for this text is that there are a number of very important concepts left to the reader to discover on their own via the exercises. Most of these exercise problems walk you through the problem, but a few simply leave it up to the reader to "figure it out." This is probably the best way to learn if you have the same amount of time that the founding mathematicians did when they made such discoveries, but I would have preferred a few more explanations in the body of the text. With that said, if this book is used in the classroom, I am sure the professor and teaching assistant can make up for this discrepancy (I just wasn't fortunate enough to be in that position).
To the reviewer who complained of this being a "smoke and mirrors" approach to technical education, I couldn't disagree more. As a lifelong student and educator myself, there simply is no other way to fully learn a subject, than to struggle (within reason) through the exercises yourself; having every step laid out for your perusal does not achieve the same effect. And for me, this author strikes the perfect balance of laying out most of the rungs on the ladder for the reader to ascend, and leaving some to be discovered in the exercises. If the rungs seem too far apart, that is because you do not have sufficient background to attempt this book. This is not something to be ashamed or embarrassed about, it simply means that you need to find a different book or books that are more suited to where you're at now, and master those before moving on. For those of us who have already struggled through poorly written texts, this book is wonderfully written and a pleasure to read. A true gem.
