Introduction to Partial Differential Equations

Publisher: UCSB 2003
Number of pages: 169
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.

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.

Since the 1980s, the theory of pseudodifferential operators has yielded many significant results in nonlinear PDE. This monograph is devoted to a summary and reconsideration of some uses of this important tool in nonlinear PDE.

The origin of scattering theory is the study of quantum mechanical systems. The scattering theory for perturbations of the flat Laplacian is discussed with the approach via the solution of the Cauchy problem for the corresponding perturbed equation.

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.
