I have some confusion about when separation variables can be applied to a PDE. Can it be applied on any PDE that can separated for any domain? If so, is the use of more "powerful" techniques simply used to save effort? (As you might have to use superposition several times!)(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
