# SourcePDETerm

SourcePDETerm[vars,f]

represents a source term with source coefficient and model variables vars.

SourcePDETerm[vars,f,pars]

uses model parameters pars.

# Details

• Source terms are used in a number of domains such as thermodynamics, acoustics, chemistry, physics and fluid dynamics.
• A source is typically used to model a source or sink.
• Adding a source with a source coefficient is the process of inserting or removing energy into a model by:
• SourcePDETerm returns a differential operators term to be used as a part of partial differential equations:
• SourcePDETerm can be used to model sources in equations with dependent variable , independent variables and time variable .
• Stationary model variables vars are vars={u[x1,,xn],{x1,,xn}}
• Time-dependent model variables vars are vars={u[t,x1,,xn],{x1,,xn}} or vars={u[t,x1,,xn],t,{x1,,xn}}.
• The source term in context with other PDE terms is given by:
• The source coefficient has the following form:
•  scalar
• For a system of PDEs with dependent variables {u1,,um}, the source represents:
• The source term in context systems of PDE terms:
• The source coefficient is a tensor of rank 1 of the form where each value is a scalar that can be specified in the same way as for a single dependent variable.
• The source coefficient can depend on time, space, parameters and the dependent variables.
• The coefficient does not affect the meaning of NeumannValue.
• All quantities that do not explicitly depend on the independent variables given are taken to have zero partial derivative.
