For one semester junior/senior level courses in partial differential equations in departments of engineering, physics, applied mathematics, social sciences, biology, and other sciences. This text spans into the spectrum of physics, engineering, mathematical physiology, environmental studies, and mathematical applications. Motivated by applications it gives students the opportunity to connect the material in the text to that of their particular majors. Almost every topic in the text has an example or a counter example, allowing students to easily follow the examples one step at a time without getting lost. There is also an added focus on problems that require physical to mathematical translations, showing the students how mathematical equations have actual physical meaning in the real world.

One of the best books I ever read for Aircraft design. The most interesting part of this book is that the author describes how different design parameters affects the aircraft's performance in a simple and clear manner. I have recommended this book to many and has been a pleasure to receive positive feedback.
