Partial Differential Equations (PDEs) are at the heart of many
computer analyses or simulations of continuous physical systems such
as fluids, electromagnetic fields, the human body, etc .
Since the HPJava system aims at scientific and engineering computing
applications, benchmarking PDEs is an important issue for the
system. In this section we will briefly review the mathematical
background of PDEs such as Laplace equations and diffusion equations,
and will benchmark the PDE programs in HPJava.
