In the course we will survey different topics in partial differential equations. A strong emphasis will be on examples, in particular from the physics and engineering sciences. More details can be found in the syllabus.
Grades in this course will be determined by a mid-term, a final exam and roughly bi-weekly assignments that will be marked and returned to you by the TAs. The final mark will be composed as follows:
The required text book for the course will be Applied
Partial Differential Equations with Fourier Series and
Boundary Value Problems by Richard Haberman, published
by Pearson Prentice. Any edition is fine, but references in
classes and examples will refer to the 5th edition.
Another good reference, with a more rigorous treatment of the material we will cover is Partial Differential Equations, An Introduction by Walter Strauss, published by Wiley.
The homework assignments will be posted here in the course of the term. Approximately every other problem sheet will contain some assessed questions, these will be clearly marked. There will be five assessed sheets in total and they will be of equal weight, but you will receive the average of the best four of your five assignments.
Write up the solutions to assessed questions, staple the
sheets together and bring them to the class indicated.
The TA will grade your work and return it to you in the next
Solutions to the problem sheets will be posted here, always in the week after they were due to be discussed in class:
You are encouraged to solve the other questions in your own
time and discuss any problems you may have in the tutorials.
You will get much more out of the tutorials if you attempt
your own solution first. I will put up a sheet with just the
final answers in the handout section below, so that you can
check your work.
Please note that late assignments will receive zero marks! If, for whatever reason, you cannot come to the relevant class please contact me well in advance of the deadline.
