The laws of nature are written in the language of partial differential equations. Therefore, these equations arise as models in virtually all branches of science and technology. This course is an introduction to this subject and it helps you to understand what this vast subject is about. The pre requisites of this course are basic calculus, elementary linear algebra and some experience with ordinary differential equations. The traditional approach to the subject is to introduce a number of analytical techniques, enabling the student to de-rive exact solutions of some simplified problems. Topics like separation of variables and energy ar-guments, are discussed for the three basic linear partial differential equations, i.e. the heat equa-tion, the wave equation, and Poissonâ€™s equation.
