COURSE DESCRIPTION

We will study three types of equations in detail: the Laplace equation, the heat equation and the wave equation. We will also introduce distributions and discuss the notion of a `fundamental solution'. Finally, we introduce Sobolev spaces, investigate their properties and use them to solve general second order elliptic equation.
