This course surveys various uses of 'entropy' concepts in the study of PDE, 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.

This text aims at highlights of spectral theory for self-adjoint partial differential operators, with an emphasis on problems with discrete spectrum. The course aims to develop your mental map of spectral theory in partial differential equations.

The purpose of this course was to introduce students to the applications of Fourier analysis -- by which I mean the study of convolution operators as well as the Fourier transform itself -- to partial differential equations.

These lecture notes give an introduction to perturbation method with main focus on the method of multiple scales as it applies to pulse propagation in nonlinear optics. Aimed at students that have little or no background in perturbation methods.
