Introduction “Many phenomena in sciences and engineering depend on more than one variable. For example, an unknown function of a real-world problem usually depends on both time t and the location of the point (x,y,z).” p. 451 Physical laws, including the conservation of energy, momentum and mass, the laws of electricity and magnetism, thermodynamics, and chemical kinetics, require that the partial derivatives of these functions satisfy certain (partial differential) equations.

Introduction Increasingly, PDE’s are used to model biological and social phenomena. The models include the “law of supply and demand” in economics that determines equilibrium prices of goods and services, the Black-Sholes equation for options prices in arbitrage-free financial markets, and laws that describe the evolution of population densities that are used in epidemiology, ecology, and population genetics. http://www.imbs.uci.edu/index.html

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
