An Elementary Course in Partial Differential Equations
An Elementary Course in Partial Differential Equations is a concise, 1-term introduction to partial differential equations for the upper-level undergraduate/graduate course in Mathematics, Engineering and Science. Divided into two accessible parts, the first half of the text presents first-order differential equations while the later half is devoted to the study of second-order partial differential equations. Numerous applications and exercises throughout allow students to test themselves on key material discussed.
