Introduction to partial differential equations. Differential equations which are important in applications are classified and solved. Elliptic, parabolic and hyperbolic differential equations are treated. The following mathematical tools are introduced: Laplace transforms, Fourier series, separation of variables, methods of characteristics.

Detailed program

Laplace Transform
Laplace Transform, Inverse Laplace Transform, Linearity, s-Shifting. Transforms of Derivatives and Integrals, application to ODEs. Unit Step Function, t-Shifting. Short Impulses, Dirac's Delta Function, Partial Fractions. Convolution, Integral Equations. Differentiation and Integration of Transforms.

Fourier Series, Integrals and Transforms
Fourier Series. Functions of Any Period \(p=2L\). Even and Odd Functions, Half-Range Expansions. Forced Oscillations. Approximation by Trigonometric Polynomials. Fourier Integral. Fourier Transform.

Partial Differential Equations
Basic Concepts. Modeling: Vibrating String, Wave Equation. Solution by separation of variables; use of Fourier series. D'Alembert Solution of Wave Equation, Characteristics. Heat Equation: Solution by Fourier Series. Heat Equation: Solutions by Fourier Integrals and Transforms. Modeling Membrane: Two Dimensional Wave Equation.

WINTER 2019 - Exam and solutions

Exam Winter 2019 Solutions Winter 2019

The exercise classes are every Thursday/Friday, starting from the first week of lectures, that is on 27/28 September. The problems are on the arguments treated in the lecture held on Thursday.
However, the exercise sheets will be published already every Monday, so that you can start having a look at them.
We expect you to do that, in order to be able to ask your questions in the exercise class.

After the exercise class you have exactly one week to hand in your solutions, either in your assistant's box in HG F27, or directly to your assistant in the following exercise class.
Your solutions will then be corrected and handed in back to you in the second exercise class to come (or left in the box if you're not there in the class).
Written solutions will be published in the weekend after you have handed in your exercises. We encourage you to actively participate to the classes.

Bonus exercises: the exercises denoted by "Bonus exercise" are not necessary in preparation for the exam.
