Second order PDE in Polar coordinates. Solve for \(u(r,\theta )\) \[ u_{rr} + u_{\theta \theta } = 0 \] With boundary conditions \begin {align*} u(2,\theta )&=3 \sin (2 \theta )+1 \end {align*}

\[\left \{\left \{u(r,\theta )\to \fbox {$\begin {array}{cc} \{ & \begin {array}{cc} 6 e^{4-2 r} \cos (\theta ) \sin (\theta )+1 & r\geq 2 \\ \text {Indeterminate} & \text {True} \\\end {array} \\\end {array}\text { if }r\neq 2$}\right \}\right \}\]

\[u \left (r , \theta \right ) = -\frac {3 i {\mathrm e}^{2 i \theta -2 r +4}}{2}+\frac {3 i {\mathrm e}^{-2 i \theta +2 r -4}}{2}+1\]
