This mini-course of 20 lectures aims at highlights of spectral theory for self-adjoint partial differential operators, with a heavy emphasis on problems with discrete spectrum. The course aims to develop your mental map of spectral theory in partial differential equations.

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 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.
