Symmetry and Separation of Variables
by Willard Miller
Publisher: Addison-Wesley 1977
Number of pages: 318
Originally published in 1977, this volume is concerned with the relationship between symmetries of a linear second-order partial differential equation of mathematical physics, the coordinate systems in which the equation admits solutions via separation of variables, and the properties of the special functions that arise in this manner.

A Cauchy problem in mathematics asks for the solution of a partial differential equation that satisfies certain conditions which are given on a hypersurface in the domain. Cauchy problems are an extension of initial value problems.

This course aims to make students aware of the physical origins of the main partial differential equations of classical mathematical physics, including the equations of fluid and solid mechanics, thermodynamics, and classical electrodynamics.

This book encompasses both traditional and modern methods treating partial differential equation (PDE) of first order and second order. There is a balance in making a selfcontained mathematical text and introducing new subjects.
