MATH 442 Intro to Partial Differential Equations, Fall 2019

Course Home | Lectures | Homework | Exams | Discussion Board

This course introduces students to partial differential equations, emphasizing the wave, diffusion and Laplace equations. The focus is on understanding the physical meaning and mathematical properties of solutions of partial differential equations. Methods include fundamental solutions and transform methods for problems on the line, and separation of variables using orthogonal series for problems in regions with boundary. Convergence of Fourier series is covered in detail.
