    Can anybody suggest good resources for me to learn about the method of lines? I have budget to buy textbooks.

    The boss has received a "request for proposal" from a client with deep pockets. That means they want us to submit a bid for a contract.

    The client wants us to apply the method of lines to solving a standard category of numerical problems in our industry. Ordinarily this kind of problem is solved using a variety of simplification assumptions. It would seem that somebody has noticed that computers have gotten faster in the last 20 years, so we should be able to do better.

    Or, post this in one of the math forums.
