I need to solve an equation. It would be a great help if you solve this.
The problem is mentioned at
http://www.geocities.com/satyaranjandas77/PDE.pdf. I had to go this way
because I was not able to send an attachment.
I had made many attempts myself, but since it is more than 5 years I am out
of college I need to relearn how to solve PDE. :(
Is it possible to solve this equation using mathmatica? Even the power
series solution will work just fine for me.
Thanks in advance,
--- Below are some more related info ----
I did try Phi(r, theta) = F(r)G(theta), but this did not work.
I had tried the followings too:
Phi(r, theta) = (1/r) Psi(r, theta) -> to reduce the equation to look more
Phi(r, theta) = Psi(r sin(theta)/r_0, theta) -> to make the equation
dimensionless, and from the equation it seems like r sin(theta) is more
Phi(r, theta) = Psi(r_0 sin(theta)/r, theta) -> here r and r_0 have changed
I did not try power series because the equation is in two variables.
Boundary condition is that Phi vanishes as r->oo.
Other condition on Phi is that it is symmetric about theta = pi/2 => Phi(r,
theta) = Phi(r, pi - theta).
I even tried a trial function:
Phi(r, theta) = (r /(r_0^2 sin^2 theta)) (1 - exp(-r^2/(r_0^2 sin^2
theta))), but this does not satisfy the equation.
You may ignore my attempts because I am not too sure if I was doing the
I realized that my mathematical capabilities have been deteriorated during
last five years.
