Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations in Engineering discusses methods of solution for nonlinear partial differential equations, particularly by using a unified treatment of analytic and numerical procedures. The book also explains analytic methods, approximation methods (such as asymptotic processes, perturbation procedures, weighted residual methods), and specific numerical procedures associated with these equations. The text presents exact methods of solution including the quasi-linear theory, the Poisson-Euler-Darboux equation, a general solution for anisentropic flow, and other solutions obtained from ad hoc assumptions. The book explores analytic methods such as an ad hoc solution from magneto-gas dynamics. Noh and Protter have found the Lagrange formulation to be a convenient vehicle for obtaining "soft" solutions of the equations of gas dynamics. The book notes that developing solutions in two and three dimensions can be achieved by employing Lagrangian coordinates. The book explores approximate methods that use analytical procedures to obtain solutions in the form of functions approximating solutions of nonlinear problems. Approximate methods include integral equations, boundary theory, maximum operation, and equations of elliptic types. The book can serve and benefit mathematicians, students of, and professors of calculus, statistics, or advanced mathematics.
