Numerical Partial Differential Equations for Environmental Scientists and Engineers: A First Practical Course
Hardcover - English

This book concerns the practical solution of Partial Differential Equations. We assume the reader knows what a PDE is - that he or she has derived some, and solved them with the limited but powerful arsenal of analytic techniques. We also assume that (s)he has gained some intuitive knowledge of their solution properties, either in the context of specific applications, or in the more abstract context of applied mathematics. We assume the reader now wants to solve PDE's for real, in the context of practical problems with all of their warts - awkward geometry, driven by real data, variable coefficients, nonlinearities - as they arise in real situations. The applications we envision span classical mathematical physics and the engineering sciences: fluid mechanics, solid mechanics, electricity and magnetism, heat and mass transfer, wave propagation. Of course, these all share a joyous interdisciplinary unity in PDE's. The material arises from lectures at Dartmouth College for first-year graduate students in science and engineering. That audience has shared the above motivations, and a mathematical background including: ordinary and partial differential equations; a first course in numerical an- ysis; linear algebra; complex numbers at least at the level of Fourier analysis; and an ability to program modern computers. Some working exposure to applications of PDE's in their research or practice has also been a common denominator. This classical undergraduate preparation sets the stage for our First Practical Course. Naturally, the practical aspect of the course involves computation....

This book concerns the practical solution of Partial Differential Equations (PDEs). It reflects an interdisciplinary approach to problems occurring in natural environmental media: the hydrosphere, atmosphere, cryosphere, lithosphere, biosphere and ionosphere. It assumes the reader has gained some intuitive knowledge of PDE solution properties and now wants to solve some for real, in the context of practical problems arising in real situations. The practical aspect of this book is the infused focus on computation. It presents two major discretization methods - Finite Difference and Finite Element. The blend of theory, analysis, and implementation practicality supports solving and understanding complicated problems. It is divided into three parts. Part I is an overview of Finite Difference Methods. Part II focuses on Finite Element Methods, including an FEM tutorial. Part III deals with Inverse Methods, introducing formal approaches to practical problems which are ill-posed.
