General Information

Text Mark A Pinsky, Partial Differential Equations and Boundary-value Problems With Applications, 3rd ed., Amer. Math. Soc., 2011.

First chapters of the book are available here

Homeworks. This is an essential part of the class and is worth a considerable amount of the grade. The homework sets will be posted weekly (after the split) on the web in PDF format and will be due in class on the due date. If for some reason you need to miss the lecture, please bring the homework to the professor's office by noon on the due date. (Put it under their office door if the professor is not there.) Late work will receive no credit. You may discuss your homework with other people (in fact, this is often a good idea), but the work you hand in must be your own, not copied directly from others. You should also list your working partners on the homework you hand in. Check your e-mail regularly for more information

Grading Policy Grades will be computed using the following scheme:

  • Homework – 20%

  • Midterm 1 – 20%

  • Midterm 2 – 20%

  • Final – 40%

Makeup examinations. There is no makeup exam policy in this course. I will drop the score for the work missed due to unforeseeable circumstances beyond the student's control.
