   Has anyone in this group used Mathematica to solve partial dif.eq's  
   via separation of variables?  I took the obvious first step of  
   defining my function as a product of three terms, each a function of  
   one space variable.  Is there any way to tell mathematica that  
   certain variables are completely independant, so that it will  
   separate them?

   Thanks for any ideas.
