This course has been adjusted for remote participation in Sem 2 2021 due to COVID-19 restrictions. On-campus activities will also be available.
The course will discuss the three main classes of equations: elliptic, parabolic and hyperbolic. Topics will include:
- Fundamental solutions
- Maximum principles
- Regularity (smoothness) of solutions
- Variational problems
- Holder and Sobolev spaces
Note: Graduate students attend joint classes with later year undergraduate students but are assessed separately.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
On satisfying the requirements of this course, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
1. Explain the concepts and language of partial differential equations and their role in modern mathematics and applied contexts
2. Analyse and solve complex problems using partial differential equations as functional and analytical tools
3. Apply problem-solving with partial differential equations to diverse situations in physics, engineering and other mathematical contexts
4. Apply partial differential equations to specific research problems in mathematics or other fields
- 3-4 written assignments involving problem-solving, proofs of theorems and extension of theory (60%; LO 1-4)
- Final exam (40%; LO 1-4)
The ANU uses Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity. While the use of Turnitin is not mandatory, the ANU highly recommends Turnitin is used by both teaching staff and students.
