"# " t = $ c "# " x " 2 u " x 2 + " 2 u " y 2 = 9/29/06 Atms 502 - Fall 2006 - Jewett 3 PDE linearity A linear PDE is linear in the unknown functions and their derivatives. thus the coefficients multiplying each function or derivative depend only on independent variables. " u " t = # c " u " x " U " t = # U " U " X (linear) (nonlinear) 9/29/06 Atms 502 - Fall 2006 - Jewett 4 Nonlinear transition A numerical solution can also transition from a linear to a nonlinear regime . By this we mean a numerical solution might resemble a linearized theoretical solution of a physical problem. In such a case a small perturbation (disturbance) might grow exponentially - in a linear mode - until the perturbation is large enough that nonlinear processes take over. 2...
