This ebook is designed as a complicated undergraduate or a first-year graduate direction for college kids from a number of disciplines like utilized arithmetic, physics, engineering. It has advanced whereas instructing classes on partial differential equations over the last decade on the Politecnico of Milan. the most goal of those classes used to be twofold: at the one hand, to coach the scholars to understand the interaction among conception and modelling in difficulties coming up within the technologies and however to provide them an outstanding heritage for numerical equipment, equivalent to finite modifications and finite elements.

We have ψ t = g (ϕ) ϕt , ψ x = g (ϕ) ϕx , ψ xx = g (ϕ) (ϕx )2 + g (ϕ) ϕxx . 66) we find 1 g (ϕ) [ϕt − εϕxx ] = [ (g (ϕ))2 + εg (ϕ)](ϕx )2 . 2 Hence, if we choose g (s) = 2ε log s, then the right hand side vanishes and we are left with ϕt − εϕxx = 0. 68) which is the Hopf-Cole transformation. 69) is transformed into an initial data of the form10 x ϕ0 (x) = exp − a u0 (z) dz 2ε (a ∈ R). 70) has a unique smooth solution in the half-plane t > 0, given by formula ϕ (x, t) = √ 1 4πεt 2 +∞ −∞ ϕ0 (y) exp − (x − y) 4εt dy.

Describe, with respect to the parameter a ∈ [0, 1], the evolution of ρ as t > 0: find the characteristics, the shock curve and find a solution in the half plane (x, t), for t > 0. Give an interpretation of the result. 3. Study the problem (Burgers equation) ut + uux = 0 x ∈ R, t > 0 u (x, 0) = g (x) x ∈ R when the initial data g(x), respectively, is: ⎧ ⎧ ⎨ 1 if x < 0 ⎨ 0 if x < 0 2 if 0 < x < 1 1 if 0 < x < 1 b) a) ⎩ ⎩ 0 if x > 1 0 if x > 1 ⎧ if x ≤ 0 ⎨1 1 − x if 0 < x < 1 c) ⎩ 0 if x ≥ 1. 4. The conservation law ut + u3 ux = 0 x ∈ R, t > 0 11 We refer the reader to Quarteroni [43] and Le Veque [40] for a detailed treatment of this matter.

The flux is determined by the water stream only. This case corresponds to a bulk of pollutant that is driven by the stream, without deformation or expansion. Translating into mathematical terms we find q (x, t) = vc (x, t) where, we recall, v denotes the stream speed. Diffusion. The pollutant expands from higher concentration regions to lower ones. Here we can adopt the so called Fick’s law which reads q (x, t) = −Dcx (x, t) where the constant D depends on the pollutant and has physical dimensions 2 −1 ([D] = [length] × [time] ).
