Eq.(3)P.2-1 : "Ordinary" Differential Equation (ODE)

order = highest order of derivative

Nonlinearity = What is linearity? ; use intuition for now, formal definition soon.

System has 3 unknowns:

Partial Differential Equations (PDE)

3 equations are coupled Numerical Methods

dependant variable (unknown function to solve for)

Many applications in engineering are a result of solving PDEs by separation of variables. Some examples include, but are not limited to: Heat, Solids, Fluids, Acoustics and electrmagnetics.

Examples of these types equations are:

the Helmholz equation:

and the Laplace Equation:
