Partial Differential Equations I (MATH*6041)

Code and section: MATH*6041*01

Term: Fall


Classification of partial differential equations. The Hyperbolic type, the Cauchy problem, range of influence, well- and ill-posed problems, successive approximation, the Riemann function. The elliptic type: fundamental solutions, Dirichlet and Neumann problems. The parabolic type: boundary conditions, Green's functions and separation of variables. Introduction to certain non-linear equations and transformations methods. Offered in conjunction with MATH*4270. Extra work is required for graduate students.
