# PDEModel

PDE model object

## Description

A `PDEModel`

object contains information about
a PDE problem: the number of equations, geometry, mesh, and boundary
conditions.

## Creation

Create a `PDEModel`

object using `createpde`

. Initially, the only nonempty property is
`PDESystemSize`

. It is `1`

for scalar
problems.

## Properties

## Object Functions

`geometryFromEdges` | Create 2-D geometry from decomposed geometry matrix |

`geometryFromMesh` | Create 2-D or 3-D geometry from mesh |

`importGeometry` | Import geometry from STL or STEP file |

`setInitialConditions` | Give initial conditions or initial solution |

`specifyCoefficients` | Specify coefficients in PDE model |

`solvepde` | Solve PDE specified in a PDEModel |

`solvepdeeig` | Solve PDE eigenvalue problem specified in a PDEModel |
