Partial Differential Equations with Fourier Series and Boundary Value Problems – Nakhlé H. Asmar – 2nd Edition


For introductory courses in Partial (PDEs) taken by majors in engineering, , and mathematics. This example-rich text fosters a smooth transition from elementary ordinary differential equations courses to more advanced concepts in a on PDEs.

Asmar’s relaxed style and emphasis on make the material accessible even to students with limited exposure to topics beyond . 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 ’s Theorem and Conformal Mappings; and more geometric presentations throughout.
