Welcome to the PDE course. The learning objective of this course is to understand fundamental phenomena and techniques related to PDEs that are relevant in mathematics, physics and engineering.
The PDE course will be lectured in English. The course will be 12 weeks long and will run during teaching periods I-II. The course material will be the same as in the previous years, but there will be only one lecture a week. The amount of homework assignments will be the same as before, but course participants will have more time and support to work on the problems. The tutorial sessions will start in the first week of lectures and will run every week. Homework assignments can be found on Assignments page.
Course practices will be discussed in the first lecture on Monday 09 September 2019 at 12-14 in the lecture hall D. It is important to attend the first lecture even though information is also available in MyCourses. We have adopted a flipped classroom model for the course. The participants are expected to study the announced pages of the lecture notes before each lecture. There will be pre-lecture yes or no problems with deadlines at the beginning of each lecture, except of the first lecture.
