# Partial Differential Equation

PDEs
Differential Equation

## – Ordinary Differential Equation.

• The function has one independent variable

## – Partial Differential Equation.

• The function has 2 or more variables
Linear 2nd Partial Differential Equations
Partial Differential Equation especially linear 2nd Partial
Differential Equation is often found in engineering
problems. Such equations are in the following form

Initial and Boundary Conditions
Partial Differential Equation are normally associated
with initial and boundary conditions in order to obtain
unique solutions. The initial and boundary condition of
PDEs can be classified into 4 categories
• Dirichlet conditions
• Neumann conditions
• Cauchy conditions
• Robbins conditions
Boundary conditions
Dirichlet conditions
The values of the dependent variable are given at fixed
values of the independent variable
f ( x, y )  C
Neumann conditions
The derivative of the dependent variable are given at
fixed values of the independent variable (as a constant
or as a function of the independent variable)
f f
 C1 or  C2  g ( x , y )
x x, y y x, y
Boundary conditions
Cauchy conditions
conditions that combines both Dirichlet and Neumann
conditions

Robbins conditions
The derivative of the dependent variable are given at
fixed values of the independent variable as a function
of the dependent variable itself

Elliptic Equations
Elliptic equations are typically used to characterize
steady-state boundary value problems. The classic
example of elliptic equations is “ The Laplace equation”
which describe steady state heat transfer. Such
equation is in the form of (3 dimensions)
