March 19, 2009 - Department Offers New Course in Partial Differential Equations

The deparment has added a new course, Math 370 Partial Differential Equations, with the following course description: "A study of the theory and applications of partial differential equations. Linear and nonlinear PDEs, including quasilinear first order equations, conservation laws, discontinuous solutions, classification of PDEs, wave propagation in multiple space dimensions, Fourier analysis and separation of variables, Sturm-Liouville theory, fundamental solutions for equations of parabolic adn elliptic type, as well as consideration of the nonlinear Riemann Problem. Applications in biology, chemistry, engineering, and physics.
