  Partial differential equation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Partial differential equations are used to formulate and solve problems that involve unknown functions of several variables, such as the propagation of sound or heat, electrostatics, electrodynamics, fluid flow, elasticity, or more generally any process that is distributed in space, or distributed in space and time.

 Definitions of Partial Differential Equations
A partial differential equation is an equation that involves an unknown function and its partial derivatives.
Equation (2.1) is the one dimensional wave equation, equation (2.2) is the one dimensional heat (or diffusion) equation and equation (2.3) is the two dimensional Laplace equation.
However, unlike second order ordinary differential equations where there are two linearly independent solutions and two arbitrary constants, linear partial differential equations may well have an infinte number of linearly independent solutions and we may have to add together solutions involving an infinite number of constants.

 Partial Differential Equation Lab
Partial differential equations (PDEs) occur in many different areas of physics, ranging from quantum mechanics to general relativity, and including fields like hydrodynamics and electrodynamics.
Many of these equations can be cast as quasi-linear parabolic equations, in which there is a first order derivative in one dimension, together with higher-order derivatives in the others.
These types of equation, which are called quasi-linear if the derivative terms are all linear in the equation, are extremely common.
