Said Gamil Ahmed Sayed Ahmed, Hossein Jafari, Mukhtar Yagoub Youssif and Roberto Datja


Partial differential equations have gained great interest due to their efficiency in describing the mathematical model of several physical phenomena and engineering applications. This chapter starts by a general definition for partial differential equations followed by some of the famous analytical methods of solutions and a brief description of major numerical methods for solving partial differential equations.
