A Cauchy problem in mathematics asks for the solution of a partial differential equation that satisfies certain conditions which are given on a hypersurface in the domain. Cauchy problems are an extension of initial value problems.

In this monograph we develop an algorithm for constructing Lyapunov functions for arbitrary switched dynamical systems, possessing a uniformly asymptotically stable equilibrium. We give examples of Lyapunov functions constructed by our method.

These lecture notes view the subject through the lens of applied mathematics. The physical context for basic equations like the heat equation, the wave equation and the Laplace equation are introduced early on, and the focus is on methods.

The author develops the most basic ideas from the theory of partial differential equations, and apply them to the simplest models arising from physics. He presents some of the mathematics that can be used to describe the vibrating circular membrane.
