\esc is a \pyt based environment that has been developed to solve complex mathematical models, particularly coupled, nonlinear and timedependent partial differential equations. The intention of this cookbook, is to give new \esc users a comprehensive introduction, and to create a fundamental knowledge base and example set, that can be used as templates or references for new problems. While most of the examples in this cookbook are focused on the disciplines of geophysics and geology they all provide a solid introduction to \esc and its capabilities.

We will start by examining a simple one dimensional heat diffusion example. This problem will provide a good launch pad to build our knowledge of \esc and demonstrate how to solve simple partial differential equations (PDEs)\footnote{Wikipedia provides an excellent and comprehensive introduction to \textit{Partial Differential Equations} \url{http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Partial_differential_equation}, however their relevance to \esc and implementation should become a clearer as we develop our understanding further into the cookbook.}
