Linear Partial Differential Equations: Course Description

This course covers topics in advanced Mathematics, including the heat equation, wave equation, quasi-linear PDEs, infinite spatial domains, Fourier transform and Green's function method. Partial differential equations have a wide range of functions in applied Mathematics. This free OpenCourseWare from MIT, taught by Dr. Matthew Hancock, examines the methods for solving advanced problem sets. The lecture notes provided for this course prepare students to analyze and solve linear differential equations, and the included assignments allow students to practice--and improve--their analytical and problem solving skills. MATLAB software is required to access the downloadable assignment files. Students who plan to further their studies of areas such as physics, applied Mathematics, engineering or chemistry may benefit from the 'Linear Partial Differential Equations' course.

This course includes lecture notes, problem set assignments and practice exams. Students interested in this free course may visit the differential equations course homepage.
