Introduction to Applied Partial Differential Equations
by Richard Haberman
The course is a first introduction to partial differential equations. We will discuss the most important linear equations arising in physics. These are the heat equation, Laplace's equation, Poisson's equation and the wave equation. The solution techniques to be introduced are mainly separation of variables and eigenfunction expansions. If enough time is left at the end of the semester, an introduction to Green's functions and solution techniques based on Fourier and/or Laplace transforms will also be given.
Midterm: March 5; Final: during Finals week; weekly homework assignments.
