Plasma Physics Laboratory.2008-02-19engThe method of Kruskal-Newton diagrams for the solution of differential equations with boundary layers is shown to provide rapid intuitive understanding of layer scaling and can result in the conceptual simplification of some problems. The method is illustrated using equations arising in the theory of pattern formation and in plasma physics.442KbDifferential EquationsDifferential Equationsnonlinear Theories70 Plasma Physics And Fusion TechnologyPlasma Boundry Value ProblemsPhysicsBoundary LayersBoundry Value Problems
