Fall Semester 2002
Partial Differential Equations

 Overview:

This class is an introduction to the theory of partial
differential equations. The main topics are: classification of
PDEs, linear prototypes (transport equation, Poisson equation,
heat equation, wave equation); functional setting, function
spaces, variational methods, weak and strong solutions; first
order nonlinear PDEs, introduction to conservation laws; exact
solution techniques, transform methods, power series solutions,
asymptotics.
 Organizational Meeting:
 Monday, September 9, 12:20 in East Hall 4.
 Regular class time will be scheduled in this meeting, so please
be there or, if this is absolutely impossible, send me an email
with a list of available timeslots.
