MAT 422 Partial Differential Equations

Introduction to Partial Differential Equations, a fundamental branch of applied mathematics. Three classical equations from mathematical physics are discussed: the wave equation, the heat equation and Laplace's equation. Techniques which include separation of variables, Fourier series and fundamental solutions are introduced to address these equations. An introduction to numerical methods is also included. Prerequisites: MAT 213 and MAT 322.
