Text: Boundary Vlaue Problems, 4th Edition ,
by David L. Powers, Academic Press.
Description: This course is an introduction to
the fundamental linear partial differential equations of Mathematical
Physics - the heat, wave and Laplace equations. The basic methods used to
solve these equations are Fourier Series and separation of variables. The
first few weeks will be devoted to understanding Fourier Series. These
methods are then applied to solve important initial and boundary value
problems for these differential equations.
The course will not emphasize proofs, nor difficult abstract concepts or
ways of thinking. You are expected to be fluent in all computational
aspects of Calculus.
This course is useful as an approach to some of the deeper developments
in mathematics and physics, as well as mathematical methods used in
physics, engineering, economics and many other areas.
Homework: Assignments will be given out roughly
once a week, for a total of about 10 assignments. Homework is usually
given out on Thursdays, and due the following Thursday.
In general, no late homework will be accepted.
Examinations: There will be one Midterm
Exam, in the later part of October or early November, but the exact
date will be set later. The Midterm will be given in class. You have the
option of taking one of two final exams. The first is on:
Thursday, Dec. 10, 9:50 - 11:10 IN CLASS, lasting 80 minutes.
The Official Final Exam is:
|| Thurs., Dec. 19
Math Tower 5-127
You cannot take both exams.
Both exams are OPEN BOOK and last 80 Minutes
Grading: The homework assignments, Midterm,
and the Final Exam will count the following towards your final grade:
| Homework: 25%
|| Midterm: 30%
