This part of the site is currently under development. Its content is incomplete.

This page will talk through what a PDE is, either via a couple of very simple examples or some external links. Mass on a spring is the classic one to discuss but there are others. Riding a bike or driving a car? Just got input force, inertia and drag then - not stiffness. Would lead to point that PDEs have to 2nd order to be oscillatory, if that’s something we want to get into.
