**A First Course of Partial Differential Equations in Physical Sciences and Engineering**

by Marcel B. Finan

**Publisher**: Arkansas Tech University 2009**Number of pages**: 285

**Description**:

Partial differential equations are often used to construct models of the most basic theories underlying physics and engineering. The goal of this book is to develop the most basic ideas from the theory of partial differential equations, and apply them to the simplest models arising from the above mentioned fields.
