Handbook of Linear Partial Differential Equations for Engineers and Scientists by Andrei D. Polyanin

Following in the footsteps of the authors' bestselling Handbook of Integral Equations and Handbook of Exact Solutions for Ordinary Differential Equations, this handbook presents brief formulations and exact solutions for more than 2,200 equations and problems in science and engineering. * Parabolic, hyperbolic, and elliptic equations with constant and variable coefficients * New exact solutions to linear equations and boundary value problems * Equations and problems of general form that depend on arbitrary functions * Formulas for constructing solutions to nonhomogeneous boundary value problems * Second- and higher-order equations and boundary value problems An introductory section outlines the basic definitions, equations, problems, and methods of mathematical physics. It also provides useful formulas for expressing solutions to boundary value problems of general form in terms of the Green's function. Two supplements at the end of the book furnish more tools and information: Supplement A lists the properties of common special functions, including the gamma, Bessel, degenerate hypergeometric, and Mathieu functions, and Supplement B describes the methods of generalized and functional separation of variables for nonlinear partial differential equations.


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, October 2002 a good example of a reference information resource named 'Handbook.

,000 solutions to linear partial differential equations It is not a solution manual to accompany a textbook, but an information resource of advanced level for professionals a great addition for research and academic collections. E-Streams, Vol. 6, No. 2 I have been reading the Polyanin books Handbook of Linear Partial Differential Equations for Engineers and Scientists and Handbook of Exact Solutions for Ordinary Differential Equations. I think these books are extraordinary, and are destined to become classics CRC Press has provided an invaluable service to science and engineering by publishing these books. - William Schiesser, Lehigh University

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

Lorraine Woods

It’s a community united by a passion for books and promoting the best there is in children’s literature.

Sam Bateman and family

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Angela East

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

Alexander Boxall – age 11

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

Emily Horncastle – age 11

We love Lovereading as my 5 year old loves to read new books before anyone else has a chance, she says it makes reading exciting!

Tracey Chorley

This company is amazing; not only is it is a great opportunity to get books and review them but everyone is so friendly and supportive!

Jemma Rubens, age 10

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.
