Introduction to Partial Differential Equations 10.01.3 In spherical co-ordinates, the location is given by r , , co-ordinates. Figure 1 Spherical Coordinate System. The differential equation would now be a partial differential equation and is given as a t t C r k r k r r r r k ) 0 ( , 0 , sin sin sin 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 0 a h r , at the surface (6) where k = thermal conductivity of material, ) /( K m W = density of material, 3 / m kg As an introduction to solve PDEs, most textbooks concentrate on linear second order PDEs with two independent variables and one dependent variable. The general form of such an equation is 0 2 2 2 2 2 D y u C y x u B x u A (7) Where C B A and , , are functions of y x and and D is a function of y u x u u y x , and , , . Depending on the value of AC B 4 2 , a 2 nd order linear PDE can be classified into three categories. x y z r P

10.01.4 Chapter 10.01 1. if 0 4 2 AC B , it is called elliptic 2. if 0 4 2 AC B , it is called parabolic 3. if 0 4 2 AC B , it is called hyperbolic Elliptic Equation The Laplace equation for steady state temperature in a plate is an example of an elliptic second order linear partial differential equation. The Laplace equation for steady state temperature in a plate is given by 0 2 2 2 2 y T x T (8) Using the general form of second order linear PDEs with one dependent variable and two independent variables, 0 2 2 2 2 2 D y u C y x u B x u A 0 , 1 , 0 , 1 D C B A , gives AC B 4 2 ) 1 )( 1 ( 4 0 4 0 4 This classifies Equation (8) as elliptic.

    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.
