Partial differential equations appear in models of fluid flow, gravity, quantum mechanics, heat flow, etc. The course covers the classical theory of linear PDEs. We will study the second order PDEs (the heat equation, the wave equation, and Laplace’s equation) and we will describe first order equations via the method of characteristics.
