Course Information

Fall 2022

Course Information

The course is devoted to classical linear partial differential equations (PDE) of mathematical physics: the heat, wave, and Laplace equations. These equations are fundamental in numerous applications to physics, engineering, economics, etc. We will study solutions by the technique of separation of variables using orthogonal functions (e.g., Fourier series, Bessel functions, Legendre polynomials).
