Partial Differential Equations. I

MATH/AMSC 673, Fall 2012

Course Information


Course Description (Preliminary)

This class will give an overview of the main types of Partial Differential Equations and some of the classical methods to analyse them. The corresponding PDE's are motivated by important applications to Physics and Biology. The material covered corresponds to the first 4 chapters of Evans' book. We will start by the main linear models :
We will then proceed to Nonlinear first-order PDE and to some representation formulas. Every equation will be physically motivated and derived.
