Master methods of solution for linear constant coefficients PDE of first and second order, in particular those relevant in Mathematical Physics (e.g. waves and heat): Fourier analysis and Green function.
Expected learning outcomes
The student will learn the method of characteristics, the basic aspects of Fourier analysis and the method of Green function (propagator). This tools, or paramount relevance for the continuation of his/her studies, will be here applied to the solution of some fundamental equations for the Mathematical Physics of continuous media.
