Description

"The Handbook of Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations" is the latest in a series of acclaimed handbooks by these authors and presents exact solutions of more than 1600 nonlinear equations encountered in science and engineering - many more than any other book available. The equations include those of parabolic, hyperbolic, elliptic and other types, and the authors pay special attention to equations of general form that involve arbitrary functions. A supplement at the end of the book discusses the classical and new methods for constructing exact solutions to nonlinear equations. To accommodate different mathematical backgrounds, the authors avoid wherever possible the use of special terminology, outline some of the methods in a schematic, simplified manner, and arrange the equations in increasing order of complexity.show more

Review quote

"[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 Accolades for other "handbooks" by Polyanin and Zaitsev: - William Schiesser, Lehigh University" one-stop shopping for scientists and engineers who need a cookbook solution for partial differential equations. The logical organization--by type of equationand number of variables--makes finding entries easy. This very useful book has no competitors." -CHOICE, on Polyanin's Handbook of Linear Partial Differential Equations for Engineers and Scientistsshow more
