Introduction to Partial Differential Equations


Introduction to Partial Differential Equations

Logo for Introduction to Partial Differential Equations
Partial differential equations (PDEs) describe the relationships among the derivatives of an unknown function with respect to different independent variables, such as time and position. A very large fraction of solvable PDEs are either linear first- or second-order PDEs, or are related to such PDEs by transformation or perturbation theory. Fortunately, these PDEs also make up the language for much of the mathematical description of nature. Most of this class will concentrate on those equations... More
