# Handbook of Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations, Second Edition

**New to the Second Edition**

- More than 1,000 pages with over 1,500 new first-, second-, third-, fourth-, and higher-order nonlinear equations with solutions
- Parabolic, hyperbolic, elliptic, and other systems of equations with solutions
- Some exact methods and transformations
- Symbolic and numerical methods for solving nonlinear PDEs with Maple™,
*Mathematica*^{®}, and MATLAB^{®} - Many new illustrative examples and tables
- A large list of references consisting of over 1,300 sources

To accommodate different mathematical backgrounds, the authors avoid wherever possible the use of special terminology. They outline the methods in a schematic, simplified manner and arrange the material in increasing order of complexity.

### In the press

The present handbook is written precisely, with a lot of examples illustrating the qualitative theory for all classes of PDEs. Separate parts of the book are written with a great skill thus it may be used by lecturers and scientists for practical courses. Also it can be used by graduate and postgraduate students in their professional practice.

… exceptionally well organized and clear: the form of the equation is followed by its exact solutions. … It is an easy process to locate the equation of interest. … This handbook follows in the CRC tradition of presenting a complete and usable reference. … A valuable reference work for anyone working with nonlinear partial differential equations. Summing Up: Recommended.

The authors are to be congratulated for somehow making this book so approachable. From the well-ordered table of contents to the clear index, this book promises to be one that will be used regularly, rather than gather dust on a shelf. **Handbook of Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations** is a total success from the standpoint of offering a complete, easy-to-use solution guide.
