Alternative Title: elliptic partial differential equation. This article was most recently revised and updated by William L. Hosch , Associate Editor.

Harmonic function , mathematical function of two variables having the property that its value at any point is equal to the average of its values along any circle around that point, provided the function is defined within the circle.

An infinite number of points are involved in this average, so that…. One property of constant coefficient elliptic equations is that their solutions can be studied using the Fourier transform.

Consider Poisson's equation with periodic. The Fourier series expansion is then given by. Except for , the multiplier is nonzero. In general, a PDE may have non-constant coefficients or even be non-linear.

A linear PDE is elliptic if its principal symbol, as in the theory of pseudodifferential operators , is nonzero away from the origin. A nonlinear PDE is elliptic at a solution if its linearization is elliptic at.

One simply calls a non-linear equation elliptic if it is elliptic at any solution, such as in the case of harmonic maps between Riemannian manifolds.
