Most of the PDE techniques involve a mixture of analytic, qualitative and numeric ap- proaches. Of course, there are some easy PDEs too. If you are lucky your PDE has a solution with separable variables. In this chapter we discuss the application of the method of separation of variables in the solution of PDEs. 17.1 Second Order Linear Homogenous ODE with Con- stant Coefficients In this section, we review the basics of finding the general solution to the ODE ay 00 + by 0 + cy = 0 (17.1) where ab, and c are constants. The process starts by solving the character- istic equation ar 2 + br + c = 0 which is a quadratic equation with roots r 1 , 2 = - b ± b 2 - 4 ac 2 a . We consider the following three cases: If b 2 - 4 ac > 0 then the general solution to ( 17.1 ) is given by y ( t ) = Ae - b - b 2 - 4 ac 2 a t + Be - b + b 2 - 4 ac 2 a t . If b 2 - 4 ac = 0 then the general solution to ( 17.1 ) is given by y ( t ) = Ae - b 2 a t + Bte - b 2 a t . If b 2 - 4 ac < 0 then r 1 , 2 = - b 2 a ± i 4 ac - b 2 2 a and the general solution to ( 17.1 ) is given by y ( t ) = Ae - b 2 a t cos 4 ac - b 2 2 a t + Ae - b 2 a t sin 4 ac - b 2 2 a t. 128 SECOND ORDER LINEAR PARTIAL DIFFERENTIAL EQUATIONS 17.2 The Method of Separation of Variables for PDEs  #### You've reached the end of your free preview.
