  1. Oct 12, 2004 #1
    hi
    i need a article about applications of differential equations in physics.
    can some body help me ? :confused:

    any diff eq. book would do...

    i mean, diff. eqs (pdes and odes) are all over physics, so pretty much all teoreticall physics articles will have an embedded DE on them

    sorry for bad english

    I second ReyChquito in this.
    Examples:
    1. Fluid mechanics: Navier-Stokes, Laplace's equation are diff.eq's
    2. Solids: Elasticity theory is formulated with diff.eq.s
    3. General relativity field equations use diff.eq's
    4.Quantum Mechanics: The Schrödinger equation is a differential equation
    + a lot more

    I know. but i'm looking for an article on the web. my search using google & yahoo had no results.
    tnx a lot.

    Differential equations ARE physics, well, almost all differential equations are derived for physics to model a physical system.
