Textbook: "An introduction to Partial Differential Equations" by M. Renardy and R. Rogers, on 2 hour reserve in the library.

Course Description: Partial differential equations are fundamental to the modeling of natural phenomena. The subject is to vast too try to cover it in one course. So the modest goal of this course is to introduce distributions and explain how they serve as solutions of basic PDE.

Prerequisites: real analysis, basic complex analysis, some basic knowledge of functional analysis and Lebesgue integrarion.

Assignments: Homework will be assigned on a regular basis and will include routine exercises as well as some challenging problems.

Assignments: There will be short in-class presentations at the end of the course.


  1. Homework = 50%,
