APM346H1 Partial Differential Equations[36L]

Sturm-Liouville problems, Greens functions, special functions (Bessel, Legendre), partial differential equations of second order, separation of variables, integral equations, Fourier transform, stationary phase method. Prerequisite: MAT235Y1/MAT237Y1/MAT257Y1, MAT244H1 Exclusion: APM351Y1 Distribution Requirement Status: This is a Science course Breadth Requirement: The Physical and Mathematical Universes (5)

Scopes and other details:

There will be about 10 assignments (1 every week). Problem Sets will be posted on the web an Fridays and should be given 10 days later (Monday). Further details on the homework will be provided with the first assignment.

**No late homework will be accepted.** Precise instructions will be forthcoming.

The best recipe for success in this course is to go to all lectures and work on them. Try to understand each lecture thoroughly before the next.

Do not be afraid of asking questions. Come to the office hours! Do the problem sets. Do not wait until the night before. Start early!
