MATA 621 Applied Partial Differential Equations I: 3 hrs
This course is an introduction to partial differential equations (PDEs) and their application to physical and engineering sciences. Physical principles are used to standard equations (e.g., the heat, wave, and Laplace's and Poisson's equations) and mathematical tools are developed to provide solutions. Topics include separation of variables, Fourier series, method of eigefunction expansion, Sturm-Liouville eigenvalue problems, Green's functions, and Fourier transform solution of PDE.
