CONTENT

Classification, the concept of a well-posed problem. Initial and boundary value problems. Fourier series. The heat equation, the wave equation and the Laplace equation.

OBJECTIVE

To learn basic partial differential equations and obtain a "feel" that will help understand more complex problems.

LEARNING OUTCOME

Upon completion of this class, students should be able to:
Understand the basic types of problems PDE deals with.

Differentiate types of PDE's (hyperbolic, parabolic, etc)
Solve the basic equations.
Apply basic techniques of PDE to similar problems.
Use and understand the usage of Fourier series.
Understand (have a feel of) text dealing with more complicated equations
