The author develops the most basic ideas from the theory of partial differential equations, and apply them to the simplest models arising from physics. He presents some of the mathematics that can be used to describe the vibrating circular membrane.

This volume is concerned with the relationship between symmetries of a linear second-order partial differential equation of mathematical physics and the coordinate systems in which the equation admits solutions via separation of variables.

Written for beginning graduate students of mathematics, engineering, and the physical sciences. It covers elements of Hilbert space, distributions and Sobolev spaces, boundary value problems, first order evolution equations, etc.
