5.0 out of 5 stars A rare gem
Partial differential equations can be obscure, and are often not dealt with at all at the undergraduate level. Assuming only a reasonable familiarity with calculus and ordinary differential equations, this book is extraordinarily clear and even enjoyable. Divided into neat, digestible segments suitable for self-study, I found it a very useful introduction to PDE's,...

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 Very Good, May 8 2003

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 Must have... can be used as a reference, July 9 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Partial Differential Equations for Scientists and Engineers (Paperback)
This book is great. I have read few books on the subject and this one contains a surprisingly large amount of information which is presented in a down to ear way. It uses real physic examples so that the reader can develop a feeling of the maths involved. It is very oriented for class and teaching. The notation follows perfectly common standards and is coherent. For the price, this book is a must have and can be used for reference.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, April 7 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.

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...

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars the best PDE book for engineering guys, Nov. 5 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Partial Differential Equations for Scientists and Engineers (Paperback)
Excellent for beginners and engineers. Clear ideas and interpretations. My suggestion is to own one copy earlier. Worthy every penny!

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

3.0 out of 5 stars Fine enough, March 18 2003
By 
Jeff (Chicago, IL United States) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Partial Differential Equations for Scientists and Engineers (Paperback)
I think this book is pretty good, and amazing for the price. I haven't read other books, but I'm sure something more thorough might be better if your lecturer wasn't thorough or effective.
