MATH 054. Partial Differential Equations
An introduction to linear partial differential equations. Topics include first-order linear equations and second-order equations of elliptic, parabolic, and hyperbolic type via the Laplace equation, the heat equation, and the wave equation. Solutions to these equation are studied from analytical, qualitative, and numberical viewpoints. Additional topics depend on the interests of the students and instructor.
