I am loath to plug my own work in this forum, but since you asked for a reference... You will find a reasonably thorough treatment of such problems in the insanely low priced A Mathematica Companion for Differential Equations: http://store.wolfram.com/view/book/ISBN0130463299.str ----- Selwyn Hollis http://www.math.armstrong.edu/faculty/hollis On Friday, October 3, 2003, at 02:28 AM, K L wrote: > I am trying to solve poisson equation: > > diff(diff(u(y,z),y),y) + diff(diff(u(y,z),z),z) = 1 > > using separation of variables method. > > The boundary conditions for the problem are: > > u(1,z)=0 > u(-1,z)=0 > u(y,1)=0 > u(y,-1)=0 > > > can you please guide me to a good reference which will help me in > solving this problem using separation of variables. > > Do you know how to solve this equation using mathematica > > >
