Text: Elementary Applied Partial Differential Equations, by Richard Haberman.
Syllabus: Partial differential equations arise as basic models of flows, diffusion, dispersion and vibrations. Topics include first and second order partial differential equations and classification, particularly the wave, diffusion, and potential equations, their origins in applications and properties of solutions, characteristics, maximum principles, Green's functions, eigenvalue problems, and Fourier expansion methods.
We will attempt to cover issues from most of the first 12 chapters , with some sections skipped.
Use of Matlab or Mathematica may be required on some assignments.
Prerequisites:M427K, with a grade of at least C. One of (linear algebra courses) M311K or M340C or M341 or M346 and/or M361K or M365C is also recommended.
