This course is an introduction to Fourier series and to their use in solving partial differential equations. The course focuses on the heat equation, the wave equation and Laplace's equation; these equations are very important in applications and also illustrate important properties of p.d.e.'s in general.

Prerequisite: familiarity with basic techniques in ordinary differential equations.

The text is David Powers, Boundary Value Problems, 4th Edition.
Each student should have a scientific calculator.
