I am looking for a numerical solver for a parabolic PDE (up to 2nd order derivatives but no mixed ones) on the spatio-temporal domain [X x Y x T], either as an external package or as MAPLE code.  

I have coded the method of lines on the domain [X x T] and indeed also used pdsolve as a check for that case. However, pdsolve (numerical) cannot solve the PDEs on the domain [X x Y x T].  The run times and memory requirements for the latter case would of course be significantly greater.  

I am about to code up the method of lines (in MAPLE) on the domain [X x Y x T], but am wondering whether there exist external FORTRAN or C code packages that would be faster if called up in MAPLE and whose results would then be post-pocessed in MAPLE.

Does anyone have any suggestions?


How I can graph parabolic cylinder y=x^2 and elipsoid x^2+4y^2+4z^2=16 on a three-dimensional coordinate system?

Dear all,

I tried to use pdsolve to solve the parabolic pde but get the unexpected answer:

Is it the PDESolStruc or the other structure? Where can I find the description about this kind of structure.



In trying to solve:

 a := diff(u(t), t$2)+(p^2-I+t^2)*u(t) = 0;
I get the following solutions,              
sol1 := u(t) = _C1*WhittakerM(-1/4-(1/4*I)*p^2, 1/4, I*t^2)/sqrt(t)+_C2*WhittakerW(-1/4-(1/4*I)*p^2, 1/4, I*t^2)/sqrt(t)        
It should be possible to expand these into parabolic cylinder functions and but im not sure how, i would appreciate any help.

This excellent application

demonstrates the paths of light rays against various surfaces.  Can the initialization code be made more efficient and faster?  The only thing I could think of was to remove the call to plottools and replace it with just plot and adding an extra...
