Physics and Partial Differential Equations, The Complete Set bridges physics and applied mathematics in a manner that is easily accessible to readers with an undergraduate-level background in these disciplines. Each volume is also sold individually.

Readers who are more familiar with mathematics than physics will discover the connection between various physical and mechanical disciplines and their related mathematical models, which are described by partial differential equations (PDEs). The authors establish the fundamental equations for fields such as

  • electrodynamics;
  • fluid dynamics, magnetohydrodynamics, and reacting fluid dynamics;
  • elastic, thermoelastic, and viscoelastic mechanics;
  • the kinetic theory of gases;
  • special relativity; and
  • quantum mechanics.

Readers who are more familiar with physics than mathematics will benefit from in-depth explanations of how PDEs work as effective mathematical tools to more clearly express and present the basic concepts of physics. The book describes the mathematical structures and features of these PDEs, including

  • the types and basic characteristics of the equations,
  • the behavior of solutions, and
  • some commonly used approaches to solving PDEs.
