A First Course of Partial Differential Equations in Physical Sciences and Engineering
by Marcel B. Finan
Publisher: Arkansas Tech University 2009
Number of pages: 285
Partial differential equations are often used to construct models of the most basic theories underlying physics and engineering. The goal of this book is to develop the most basic ideas from the theory of partial differential equations, and apply them to the simplest models arising from the above mentioned fields.

These lecture notes view the subject through the lens of applied mathematics. The physical context for basic equations like the heat equation, the wave equation and the Laplace equation are introduced early on, and the focus is on methods.

This course surveys various uses of 'entropy' concepts in the study of PDE, both linear and nonlinear. This is a mathematics course, the main concern is PDE and how various notions involving entropy have influenced our understanding of PDE.

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.

In recent years considerable advances have been made in quantitative homogenization of PDEs in the periodic and non-periodic settings. This monograph surveys the theory of quantitative homogenization for second-order linear elliptic systems ...
