The origin of scattering theory is the study of quantum mechanical systems. The scattering theory for perturbations of the flat Laplacian is discussed with the approach via the solution of the Cauchy problem for the corresponding perturbed equation.

The reason for my choosing the partial differential equations as the subject for these lectures is my wish to inspire in my audience a love for Mathematics. I give a brief historical account of the application of Mathematics to natural phenomena.

In these lectures we study the boundary value problems associated with elliptic equation by using essentially L2 estimates (or abstract analogues of such estimates). We consider only linear problem, and we do not study the Schauder estimates.

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.
