Math 5587, Elementary Partial Differential Equations, Fall 2019. Course Description: Math 5587-8 is a year course that introduces the basics of partial differential equations, guided by applications in physics, engineering, biology, and finance. Both analytical and numerical solution techniques will be discussed.
This course introduces students to differential equations. Computers are used for modeling examples with MatLab, Maple, and Excel, being the primary computer tools demonstrated. Details of the course and timelines are available on the HW Assignment page. Math 531 - Spring 2017. Joseph Mahaffy Professor, Mathematical Biology.

Analysis - Analysis - Partial differential equations: From the 18th century onward, huge strides were made in the application of mathematical ideas to problems arising in the physical sciences: heat, sound, light, fluid dynamics, elasticity, electricity, and magnetism. The complicated interplay between the mathematics and its applications led to many new discoveries in both.
Applied Partial Differential Equations with Fourier Series and Boundary Value Problems emphasizes the physical interpretation of mathematical solutions and introduces applied mathematics while presenting differential equations. Coverage includes Fourier series, orthogonal functions, boundary value problems, Green’s functions, and transform methods.
And there are, actually, many other interesting partial differential equations you will maybe sometimes learn about the wave equation that governs how waves propagate in space, about the diffusion equation, when you have maybe a mixture of two fluids, how they somehow mix over time and so on. Basically, to every problem you might want to consider there is a partial differential equation to.
