Neural networks are increasingly used widely in the solution of partial differential equations (PDEs). This letter proposes 3D-PDE-Net to solve the three-dimensional PDE. We give a mathematical derivation of a three-dimensional convolution kernel that can approximate any order differential operator within the range of expressing ability and then conduct 3D-PDE-Net based on this theory. An optimum network is obtained by minimizing the normalized mean square error (NMSE) of training data, and L-BFGS is the optimized algorithm of second-order precision. Numerical experimental results show that 3D-PDE-Net can achieve the solution with good accuracy using few training samples, and it is of highly significant in solving linear and nonlinear unsteady PDEs.
