Introduction to Partial Differential Equations

Publisher: UCSB 2003
Number of pages: 169
Our goal here is to develop the most basic ideas from the theory of partial differential equations, and apply them to the simplest models arising from physics. In particular, we will present some of the elegant mathematics that can be used to describe the vibrating circular membrane.

An introduction to those aspects of partial differential equations and optimal control most relevant to finance: PDE’s naturally associated to diffusion processes, Kolmogorov equations and their applications, linear parabolic equations, etc.

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.

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 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.
