Solving a Partial Differential Equations System

  • Liliane Maria Ferrareso Lona


The idea for solving a system of partial differential equations (PDEs) using numerical methods is to transform it into a system of equations that are easier to solve, such as algebraic equations or ordinary differential equations (ODEs), for which numerical solutions were presented in Chaps. 5 and 6 of this book.
