In this chapter we are going to take a very brief look at one of the more common methods for solving simple partial differential equations. We need to make it very clear before we even start this chapter that we are going to be doing nothing more than barely scratching the surface of not only partial differential equations but also of the method of separation of variables.

## Geometry of PDEs and Related Problems

It would take several classes to cover most of the basic techniques for solving partial differential equations. Also note that in several sections we are going to be making heavy use of some of the results from the previous chapter.

That in fact was the point of doing some of the examples that we did there. When we do make use of a previous result we will make it very clear where the result is coming from.

In addition, we give several possible boundary conditions that can be used in this situation. We also define the Laplacian in this section and give a version of the heat equation for two or three dimensional situations. The Wave Equation — In this section we do a partial derivation of the wave equation which can be used to find the one dimensional displacement of a vibrating string.

In addition, we also give the two and three dimensional version of the wave equation. Terminology — In this section we take a quick look at some of the terminology we will be using in the rest of this chapter. In particular we will define a linear operator, a linear partial differential equation and a homogeneous partial differential equation.

We also give a quick reminder of the Principle of Superposition. Separation of Variables — In this section show how the method of Separation of Variables can be applied to a partial differential equation to reduce the partial differential equation down to two ordinary differential equations.

• We apply the method to several partial differential equations. We do not, however, go any farther in the solution process for the partial differential equations.
