Office Hour: MHF 12:45-2pm.

Description and Goals

Credits: 3;  Real Analysis
This course intends to teach some fundamental subjects of partial differential equations, based on the textbook of Evans. Topics include representation formula for four types of PDEs, Sobolev Spaces and some nonlinear first order equations.

Students that need accommodation

Students with disabilities requesting accommodations should first register with the Disability Resource Center (352-392-8565, by providing appropriate documentation. Once registered, students will receive an accommodation letter which must be presented to the instructor when requesting accommodation. Students with disabilities should follow this procedure as early as possible in the semester.
