A First Course of Partial Differential Equations in Physical Sciences and Engineering
by Marcel B. Finan
Publisher: Arkansas Tech University 2009
Number of pages: 285
Partial differential equations are often used to construct models of the most basic theories underlying physics and engineering. The goal of this book is to develop the most basic ideas from the theory of partial differential equations, and apply them to the simplest models arising from the above mentioned fields.

In this monograph we develop an algorithm for constructing Lyapunov functions for arbitrary switched dynamical systems, possessing a uniformly asymptotically stable equilibrium. We give examples of Lyapunov functions constructed by our method.

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.

This course aims to make students aware of the physical origins of the main partial differential equations of classical mathematical physics, including the equations of fluid and solid mechanics, thermodynamics, and classical electrodynamics.

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.
