These lecture notes give an overview of how to view and solve differential equations that are common in physics. They cover Hamilton's equations, variations of the Schroedinger equation, the heat equation, the wave equation and Maxwell's equations.

Einstein's kinetic theory of the Brownian motion, based upon water molecules bombarding a heavy pollen, provided an explanation of diffusion from the Newtonian mechanics. It is a challenge to verify the diffusion from the Schroedinger equation.

These are lecture notes for a course on the theory of Clifford algebras. The various applications include vector space and projective geometry, orthogonal maps and spinors, normed division algebras, as well as simplicial complexes and graph theory.
