Title:Closed - form solutions of PDEs through functional framework.

Abstract:The functional framework approach to PDE was developed by Rubel to study some problems of Mathematical Physics. It identifies a separation of variables on a domain in the appropriate Euclidean space. I'll indicate progress on some related analytical solutions of some models which arises in real life. Theorems will be stated and proved. Some corresponding results of Rubel are deduced as the limiting cases when some emerging parameters are equal to zero.
