Could you give me an example of the difference between ODEs and PDEs? We got stuck with a terrible Diff Eqns book that uses no examples.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2@imranmeah91 is correct. You may interested in these online references on these topics: 1) http://homepage.mac.com/nshoffner/nsh/ODE/Def_Class.html 2) http://tutorial.math.lamar.edu/Classes/DE/Definitions.aspx

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@imranmeah91, so the ODE would be written out as dy/dx, while the PDE might be written as y(d/dx)?
