H.F. Weinberger, A First Course in Partial
Differential Equations (with Complex Variables and Trtansform
Methods),

DOVER PUBLICATIONS, INC.

Math 2D, 2J, 3D, 2E, 112A, and 112B. Students should be able to do multivariable calculus, complex numbers, linear algebra and oridinary differential equations.

**Discussion
Sessions**

Each student must be signed up for the discussion session listed below:

In the discussion sessions TA will go over recently assigned homework problems and will answer your questions about the lecture. Please come prepared to ask questions. In other words,

- Homework will be assigned
at the beginning of each class and will not be
collected, but you are supposed to do them all.
**REMEMBER: the more problems you do, the better you unders****tand the material**. Students are encouraged to work together on homework sets. - There will be approximately
one quiz per week
**in the discussion session on Thursday**. There are two to four short questions in one quiz. The quiz problems will be either the same as, or very similar to those from the homework. Thus, if a student has made a good attempt at the homework, he/she should do well on the quiz. Two lowest quiz grades will be dropped from the final grade calculation. You must have a doctor's or University authorized excuse in order to make up a missed quiz. - There will be one midterm
exam, and a comprehensive final exam covering
all materials I talked. Final exam is
scheduled on June 9 (Mon. from 4:00pm to 6:00pm), and
it is
**predetermined and immovable**. I will give at least one week notice in class of upcoming midterm exams. You must have a doctor's or University authorized excuse in order to make up a missed test. - Grades are posted on EEE gradebook. A weighted course percentage, wcp, will be calculated according to the following weights: Quizzes 25%, Midterm 25%, , and Final Exam 50%. As an example, if I have 90% of Quiz, 90% of Midterm, and 70% of Final Exam points, then my course percentage is .25(90%) + .25(90%) + .5(70%) = 80%. The formula is wcp=0.25(quiz%) + 0.25(midterm%) + 0.5(final%). Letter grades, on the plus/minus scale (e.g., B+, B, B-), will be decided at the end of the term.
- Academic dishonesty of any form
will
**.** - Tentative class schedule :

Green's function, higher dimension PDEs, Fourier transform, special functions.
