Learn to account for and prove basic theorems on partial differential equations, especially the wave equation, the Laplace equation and the heat equation.
The course covers: Introduction to first order equations. The wave equation: equation in one or several space coordinates, Huygens’ principle. The Laplace equation: fundamental solutions, Green's function, Dirichlet problem, the maximum principle, Dirichlet's principle, introduction to Sobolev spaces. The heat equation: initial value problem, fundamental solutions, the maximum principle.
