1 Atms 502 CS 505 CSE 566 Numerical Fluid Dynamics Tue., 29 August 2006 9/29/06 Atms 502 - Fall 2006 - Jewett 2 PDE Order The order of a PDE is that of the highest-order partial derivative We will typically look at problems that are first-order in time. "# " t = \$ c "# " x " 2 u " x 2 + " 2 u " y 2 = 0 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.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
