Course Information

This course is an introduction to Fourier series and to their use in solving partial differential equations (PDEs). We will discuss in detail the three fundamental types of PDEs: the heat equation, the wave equation and Laplace's equation. These equations are important in many applications from various fields (mathematics, physics, engineering, economics, etc.) and illustrate important properties of PDEs in general.
