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 and are to be contrasted with boundary value problems.

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.

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.

A survey of results about existence, multiplicity, perturbation from symmetry and concentration phenomena for a class of quasi-linear elliptic equations coming from functionals of the calculus of variations which turn out to be merely continuous.

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.
