I need to solve the following partial differential equation in seven variables with four boundary conditions. I don't think Mathematica has the capacity to solve this differential equation.

enter image description here

Do you know of scientific packages which can be used to solve this equation and plot graphs of the dependent variable against each of the independent variables?

  • $\begingroup$ This equation seem to be off second order to me $\endgroup$ – nicoguaro Nov 30 '17 at 3:51
  • $\begingroup$ This looks like it's only an equation in three variables ($t_x,r_x,\theta_x$) plus a time-like variable $u$. $t_y,r_y,\theta_y$ only seem to be parameters, but there are no derivatives with regards to these variables. Is this correct? If so, you basically have a 3+1 dimensional advection diffusion equation with some wacky weights. $\endgroup$ – Wolfgang Bangerth Nov 30 '17 at 6:46
  • $\begingroup$ That's true. $t_y$, $r_y$ and $\theta_y$ only appear in one of the boundary conditions. How would you solve a $3+1$-dimensional advection diffusion equation with wacky weights though? $\endgroup$ – nightmarish Nov 30 '17 at 7:08
