Normal coordinates of a dynamical system

  1. Dec 2, 2009 #1

    I've studied ODE's but not Partials DE.

    in ODE one uses linearization method to linearize an non-linear system of equations.

    My question is:

    The method of finding normal coordinates for say, a dynamical system, is that the correspondent of the method i described above but for PDE??
