Partial differential equations
 1. Partial differential equations (PDEs) are a type of differential equation that involves multiple independent variables. They are used to describe such phenomena as heat conduction, fluid dynamics, and quantum mechanics. Unlike ordinary differential equations, which involve only one independent variable, PDEs involve two or more independent variables and their partial derivatives. The solutions to PDEs are functions that depend on all the independent variables and satisfy the given differential equation. PDEs play a crucial role in various fields of science and engineering, providing powerful tools for modeling and predicting the behavior of complex systems.Which method is commonly used to solve linear partial differential equations with constant coefficients?A) Laplace transform methodB) Finite difference methodC) Green's function methodD) Method of separation of variables2.
