Classification of partial differential equations.
Study of the Heat equation general diffusion/parabolic problems using the following tools:
Analysis I and II. In particular, knowing how to solve ordinary differential equations is an important prerequisite.
Note: the schedule for the exercises is changed! The new exercises will be posted here on Wednesdays. We expect you to look at the problems over the week and to prepare questions for the exercise class on Thursday.
Please hand in your solutions directly to the TA at the exercise class. If this is not possible, please hand them in by the following Friday at 12:00 in your assistant's box in HG J68. Your solutions will usually be corrected and returned in the following exercise class or, if not collected, returned to the box in HG J68.
The solutions of the exercise were removed from this website. If you need them for any reason, please send an email to "davide [dot] spriano [at] math [dot] ethz [dot] ch".

The midterm will be on Tuesday the 14th of November, in substitution of the normal lecture. That is, the midterm will be held in room HIL E 1, from 10.15 to 12. Even if the starting time of the exam is 10.15, we ask you to arrive at least 10 minutes eariler, in order to be able to start on time. The midterm will consist of some mulitple choices questions.
The aids admitted for the midterm are the same as for the final exam. That is 20 pages (10 sheets) A4 of self-authored summary (handwritten or typed in LaTex). That means that is NOT allowed to photocopy the summary of someone else. No other aids are allowed, in particular no calculators.
The midterm will cover the material up to Lecture 6 included (i.e. d'Alambert solution).
The final exam will be on Wednesday the 31st of January, from 9:00 to 11:00. The exam will take place in room ONA E 7. Even if the starting time of the exam is 9:00, we ask you to arrive at least 15 minutes eariler, in order to be able to start on time.
The exam will consist of 4 mulitple choices questions and 2 written questions. The multiple choice part of the exam will be performed electronically. That means that every students will answer the questions on a computer that we will provide.The aids admitted for the final exam are 20 pages (10 sheets) A4 of self-authored summary (handwritten, typed in LaTex or in Word). That means that is NOT allowed to photocopy the summary of someone else. No other aids are allowed, in particular no calculators. A list of trigonometric identities and the Table of Laplace Transforms is going to be provided at the exam. This means that you should not worry about including that in your summary.
