This book treats the Atiyah-Singer index theorem using the heat equation, which gives a local formula for the index of any elliptic complex. Heat equation methods are also used to discuss Lefschetz fixed point formulas and the Gauss-Bonnet theorem.

This course aims to make students aware of the physical origins of the main partial differential equations of classical mathematical physics, including the equations of fluid and solid mechanics, thermodynamics, and classical electrodynamics.

In this book we formulate and prove the variational extremum principle for viscous incompressible and compressible fluid, from which principle follows that the Navier-Stokes equations represent the extremum conditions of a certain functional.

In this book a non-linear system of partial differential equations will be established as a mathematical model of elasticity. An energy functional will be established and existence results will be studied in the second chapter.
