**An Introduction to Partial Differential Equations**

by Per Kristen Jakobsen

**Publisher**: arXiv.org 2019**Number of pages**: 226

**Description**:

These lecture notes view the subject through the lens of applied mathematics. From this point of view, the physical context for basic equations like the heat equation, the wave equation and the Laplace equation are introduced early on, and the focus of the lecture notes are on methods, rather than precise mathematical definitions and proofs. With respect to methods, both analytical and numerical approaches are discussed.
