**Introduction to Partial Differential Equations**

by John Douglas Moore

**Publisher**: UCSB 2003**Number of pages**: 169

**Description**:

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.
