Needs attention[edit]

This article is very helpful and needs attention. It should really address the topic which it claims to be about. Larus 17:12, 23 April 2007 (UTC)

Agree, the article should start with info copied from Partial differential equation#Classification --Berland 17:29, 23 April 2007 (UTC)
Also agree — the article should provide a general definition, for example. — DIV ( 08:11, 27 June 2007 (UTC))

It'd also be nice to add another page dealing with the parabolic approximation (to reduced waves through random media with slowly varying refractive indices). I might do, after I find an acceptable reference. (talk) 17:02, 12 March 2009 (UTC)


I think some precisions should be made in the second part, concerning the sign of the laplacian (since there is differentes conventions).
