Parabolic Equation The heat conduction equation is an example of a parabolic second order linear partial differential equation. The heat conduction equation is given by 2 2 x T k t T (9) 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 1 , 0 , 0 , D C B k A , gives AC B 4 2 ) )( 0 ( 4 0 k 0 This classifies Equation (9) as parabolic.

    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.
