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 equations are studied from analytical, qualitative, and numerical viewpoints. Additional topics depend on the interests of the students and instructor.
