Counter This is the first book on the numerical method of lines, a relatively new method for solving partial differential equations. The Numerical Method of Lines is also the first book to accommodate all major classes of partial differential equations. This is essentially an applications book for computer scientists. The author will separately offer a disk of FORTRAN 77 programs with 250 specific applications, ranging from "Shuttle Launch Simulation" to "Temperature Control of a Nuclear Fuel Rod."
