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.

The reason for my choosing the partial differential equations as the subject for these lectures is my wish to inspire in my audience a love for Mathematics. I give a brief historical account of the application of Mathematics to natural phenomena.
