Description

An introduction to the methods of solution for partial differential equations and to their applications.

Partial differential equations are the life blood of the natural and physical sciences, arising in situations where variations in time and space are both important. Usually, to find a solution one can use analytical or numerical techniques.

In this course we concentrate on finding analytical solutions using the following methods:

• method of Characteristics for first order linear and quasilinear equations
• separation of variables
• fourier and Laplace transforms

Learning Outcomes

  • Students successfully completing this course should:

  • master the techniques listed above
  • be able to recognize the canonical examples of each solution method
  • be able to identify the correct approach to solve a novel problem coming from applications
  • have a good grounding in PDE theory in order to progress to more advance applied or pure mathematics courses
