An Introduction to Partial Differential Equations

Publisher: arXiv.org
Number of pages: 226

These lecture notes view the subject through the lens of applied mathematics. From this point of view, the physical context for basic equations like the heat equation, the wave equation and the Laplace equation are introduced early on, and the focus of the lecture notes are on methods, rather than precise mathematical definitions and proofs. With respect to methods, both analytical and numerical approaches are discussed.
