Web Site: Course information and updates will be posted at: http://www.math.psu.edu/belmonte/math412 08.html The Course: We live in a three-dimensional world defined by the passage of time, so it should not surprise us that many of the equations describing that world are partial differential equations (PDEs). The purpose of this course is to introduce you to these important equations - their origins, their applications, in some cases how to solve them, or at least what can be...
