Book Description:

Updated edition of the leading text on boundary value problems and Fourier series

From the Back Cover:

Boundary Value Problems is the leading text on boundary value problems and Fourier series for professionals and students in engineering, science, and mathematics who work with partial differential equations.

In this updated edition, author David Powers provides a thorough overview of solving boundary value problems involving partial differential equations by the methods of separation of variables. Additional techniques used include Laplace transform and numerical methods. Professors and students agree that Powers is a master at creating examples and exercises that skillfully illustrate the techniques used to solve science and engineering problems.

Features:
* Nearly 900 exercises ranging in difficulty from basic drills to advanced problem-solving exercises
* Many exercises based on current engineering applications

"This book provides a great introduction to solving partial differential equations. Students will find the level of the text to be understandable. The pace is comfortable where review and fundamental building blocks reinforce student skills while directing these details toward application in later sections."
-Catherine Crawford, Elmhurst College

"[Boundary Value Problems] contains many novel problems inspired by the scientific literature. I appreciate that many of these problems include realistic parameter values, and that I can easily extend them to make them more open-ended or to involve numeric or symbolic mathematical programs."
-Darryl Yong, Harvey Mudd College
