A Cauchy problem in mathematics asks for the solution of a partial differential equation that satisfies certain conditions which are given on a hypersurface in the domain. Cauchy problems are an extension of initial value problems.

In these notes, we describe the design of a small C++ program which solves numerically the sine-Gordon equation. The program is build progressively to make it multipurpose and easy to modify to solve any system of 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.
