Publisher: UC Berkeley
Number of pages: 213

Description:
This course surveys various uses of "entropy" concepts in the study of partial differential equations, 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.
