Chapter 1 INTRODUCTION AND GENERAL OUTLINE Physical problems in engineering science are often described by dif ferential models either linear or nonlinear. There is also an abundance of transformations of various types that appear in the literature of engineer ing and mathematics that are generally aimed at obtaining some sort of simplification of a differential model.+W4322(t) (1149) where W311, W212, W221, W41, and W421 are constants, W322, W422 and W4322 are functions of t, and B(t, x) is an arbitrary function of t and z. In addition, the following equations have to satisfied: 3 6 6 5% W311 +anbsp;...
