There are no general methods to solve PDEs exactly.

Most of the time you apply heuristics and/or chose an efficient numerical algorithm (= try-and-error approximation in plain language)

Numerical approximations mean a lot of number crunching, which are hardly done in Python or Perl.

The book is most likely addressing external libraries in C or Fortran which interface with Python.

The heuristic (aka symbolic calculation) parts OTOH can be translated to Perl, if implemented in pure Python.

IIRC this kind of stuff used to be done in MATLAB or similar tools.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
