Introduction to Partial Differential Equations
by John Douglas Moore
Publisher: UCSB 2003
Number of pages: 169
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.

The authors present the results of their development of a theory of the geometry of differential equations, focusing especially on Lagrangians and Poincare-Cartan forms. They also cover certain aspects of the theory of exterior differential systems.

Partial differential equations are often used to construct models of the most basic theories underlying physics and engineering. This book develops the basic ideas from the theory of partial differential equations, and applies them to simple models.
