**Differential Equations of Mathematical Physics**

by Max Lein

**Publisher**: arXiv 2015**Number of pages**: 198

**Description**:

These lecture notes are aimed at mathematicians and physicists alike. It is not meant as an introductory course to PDEs, but rather gives an overview of how to view and solve differential equations that are common in physics. Among others, I cover Hamilton's equations, variations of the Schroedinger equation, the heat equation, the wave equation and Maxwell's equations.
