Introduction to Partial Differential Equations
by

Publisher: UCSB
Number of pages: 169

Description:
Our goal here is to develop the most basic ideas from the theory of partial differential equations, and apply them to the simplest models arising from physics. In particular, we will present some of the elegant mathematics that can be used to describe the vibrating circular membrane.
