"This study was undertaken to present a summary of mathematical techniques as applied to the solution of boundary value problems in partial differential equations.
The techniques that were presented can be considered to be some of the most popular in applied science.
The salient features of the study are that different techniques can present different analytical expressions for a solution to the same boundary value problem, and from the viewpoint of computation and accuracy one solution may prove more desirable than the other.
The study also indicates that in boundary conditions where finite discontinuities exists, a slight perturbation to remove the discontinuities will give better accuracy in solution values over the unperturbed interval and in some instances over the perturbed interval but with considerable increase in computation"--Abstract p. ii
