# MATH-UA 263 Partial Differential Equations

4 points. Offered in the fall and the spring.

## Course Description

Many laws of physics are formulated as partial differential equations. This course discusses the simplest examples, such as waves, diffusion, gravity, and static electricity. Non-linear conservation laws and the theory of shock waves are discussed. Further applications to physics, chemistry, biology, and population dynamics.

## Prerequisites

MATH-UA 262 Ordinary Differential Equations with a grade of C or better or the equivalent.
