AbstractWe will model and solve scientific problems with partial differential equations. Differential equations which are important in applications will be classified and solved. Elliptic, parabolic and hyperbolic differential equations will be treated. The following mathematical tools will be introduced: Laplace and Fourier transforms, Fourier series, separation of variables, methods of characteristics.
ObjectiveLearning to model scientific problems using partial differential equations and developing a good command of the mathematical methods that can be applied to them. Knowing the formulation of important problems in science and engineering with a view toward civil engineering (when possible). Understanding the properties of the different types of partial differential equations arising in science and in engineering.
ContentClassification of partial differential equations

Study of the Heat equation general diffusion/parabolic problems using the following tools through Separation of variables as an introduction to Fourier Series.

Systematic treatment of the complex and real Fourier Series

Study of the wave equation and general hyperbolic problems using Fourier Series, D'Alembert solution and the method of characteristics.

Laplace transform and it's uses to differential equations

Study of the Laplace equation and general elliptic problems using similar tools and generalizations of Fourier series.

Application of Laplace transform for beam theory will be discussed.

Time permitting, we will introduce the Fourier transform.
