"Cooper's book stands out among a host of PDE works. It not only adequately treats traditional core partial differential equation methods but also integrates analytic solutions with numerical schemes through the implementation of MATLAB routines. As an application-oriented book that provides the basic definitions, theorems, and analyses of the solutions, it contains the core topics needed for a sound background in partial differential equations.... One of the book's excellent features is the availability of illustrative and challenging problems, some of which have been cast in the form of MATLAB projects. Such features undoubtedly make this a suitable work for a laboratory component of an introductory PDEs course. Recommended. Undergraduates through faculty." -Choice
