What the meaning for a second order pde is rotation invariant?
Is all second order pde are rotation invariant? or only laplacian?

Well, do you know what "rotation invarient" means to start with?
It sounds like you've come across the terms as part of a course involving laplacians  in which case, you were shown a proof somewhere that the laplacian is rotation invarient. What was the condition the laplacian had to satisfy for the proof to work? Do all 2ndO PDEs satisfy this condition?
