5.0 out of 5 stars excellent book
Pretty much everything to be said about this book has already been said in the other reviews, but want to rate it 5 stars anyway. It is an excellent text, because it is clearly written, easily readable, covers a lot of ground, and explains things very intuitively. An unbelievable buy for the low price it is sold for here!

3.0 out of 5 stars Too Supeficial
It never gets into the details of the matters. It gives just some examples. Not reccommended at all.

4.0 out of 5 stars A nice reference for non-purist, April 13 2011
This review is from: Partial Differential Equations for Scientists and Engineers (Paperback)
This book is divided in classes instead of chapters. It's probably more practical or pedagogical, but is not scientific elegant. If you need a quick reference on PDE, and you don't care the elegance or the logical continuity of the contents, this is a good option, specially for the price.
If you need something more advanced, try "Advanced Calculus for Applications" by Francis B. Hildebrand, which is a sort of "Handbook of Calculus": a lot of "How-to's", with references to the "why's". However, it is more expensive than this one

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent book, April 14 2009
By 
This review is from: Partial Differential Equations for Scientists and Engineers (Paperback)
I haven't read all the chapters but from the parts that I read, I think this book is really well written and organized. I, as a math student, in general prefer a book that is written for mathematician but I am completely pleased with this book (which is not very abstract). The combination of this book with Evans will be a perfect source.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good, May 8 2003
By 
This review is from: Partial Differential Equations for Scientists and Engineers (Paperback)
Unbeatable as far as breadth. Covers a lot of ground, conceptually it's extremely well organized, and the explanations are very easy to follow. This text is ideal for self-study.
The two major shortcomings are (1) slight lack of depth and (2) the exercises, which are far too few and far too simple.

5.0 out of 5 stars By far the best INTRODUCTORY text on the subject, Sept. 22 2002
By 
Sot P. Filopoulos (Athens, Greece) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Partial Differential Equations for Scientists and Engineers (Paperback)
As the title implies, this book is not intended to mathematicians, although it could finely serve as additional text for them, too. On the other hand it is excellent as an itroductory overview of the types of PDE's met and the methods used for their solution. There are references to more advanced texts for the interested, excercises in each chapter and, most importantly, nice, qualitative remarks on the properties of mathematical tools (like Fourier and Laplace transform) which help the reader to comprehend them.

This review is from: Partial Differential Equations for Scientists and Engineers (Paperback)
The strength of this book is its organization. It is all you need to understand and use PDEs. Dont waste your money on other books. This is the best intro there is...

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, April 8 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Partial Differential Equations for Scientists and Engineers (Paperback)
One thing I like about this book is that it gives a complete coverage of solution methods. I'm sick of finding books that give two or three methods for a limited number of problems.

5.0 out of 5 stars The bare essentials about PDEs, Oct. 30 2001
By 
Leopoldo Farias (Caracas, Venezuela) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Partial Differential Equations for Scientists and Engineers (Paperback)
This is a excellent reference for those interested only in solving PDEs without getting lost with their intimacies. I widely recommended it, for me has been quite useful. This an example of a simple treatment of a very complex subject.
Excelente libro para aquellos que requieran resolver ecuaciones diferenciales parciales sin que por ello estén dispuestos a leer capítulos enteros de fórmulas y procedimientos intrincados. Este es el libro más concreto y completo de ecuaciones diferenciales parciales que yo he leido alguna vez. Altamente Recomendable.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Gentle Introduction to PDE's, June 20 2001
By 
This review is from: Partial Differential Equations for Scientists and Engineers (Paperback)
A very gentle introduction to partial differential equations with a very nice mix of theory and applications, plus lots of Fourier Analysis.
