Fall Semester 2002

Partial Differential Equations

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.
