Text: Partial Differential Equations, 2nd edition, by Lawrence C. Evans, published by American Mathematical Society.
Course Description: Basic theories of partial differential equations that include quasi-linear and linear first order equations, classification of PDE's, hyperbolic equations, elliptic equations, and parabolic equations.
Chapter 1: Introduction
Chapter 2: Four Important Linear PDE
Chapter 3: Non-linear First Order PDE (selected topics)
Chapter 4: Other ways to Represent Solutions (selected topics)
Chapter 5: Sobolev Spaces
Chapter 6: Second-Order Elliptic Equations
Expected Learning Outcomes: Upon completion of this course, students should master concepts and theories of quasi-linear and linear first order partial differential equations, classification of partial differential equations, hyperbolic equations, elliptic equations, and parabolic equations.
Methods of Assessment of Learning Outcomes: Assessment of the learning outcomes will be achieved through homework assignments, two midterm exams, and a final exam.
Grading policy: Homework will be assigned weekly and will count for 30% of the grade. There will be two midterm exams in class, each will count for 20% of the grade. The final exam will count for 30% of the grade. All in-class exams are closed-book. No make-up exams are given unless legitimate documents for excuses are presented to the instructor at least a week in advance. Grading Scale: A: 90%-100%, B: 80%-89%, C: 70%-79%, D: 60%-69%, F: below 60%.
Attendance Policy: Students are expected to attend every class and are responsible for all information given in class.
Midterm 1: Thursday, February 26.
Midterm 2: Thursday, April 9.
FINAL EXAM: 4:30 p.m. - 7:00 p.m., Friday, May 8, 2015, Room MA 010.
Jan. 14: Classes begin.
Jan. 19: Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Holiday.
Jan. 30: Last day for student-initiated drop on MyTech without academic penalty.
Mar. 14 - 22: Spring Break.
Apr. 6: No classes.
Apr. 29 - May 5: No exams.
May 5: Last day of classes.
Academic Misconduct: Academic dishonesty is intolerable and will be punished to the full extent allowed by the University policy.
Civility in the Classroom: Students are expected to assist in maintaining a classroom environment that is conducive to learning.
Students with Disabilities: Any student who because of a disability may require special arrangements in order to meet course requirements should contact the instructor as soon as possible. I would appreciate hearing from anyone who has a disability that may require special accommodations. I am sure we can work out whatever arrangements are necessary. Please see me during my office hours. Student Disability Services office is in 335 West Hall (phone: 806-742-2405).
NOTE: When needed, the instructor will communicate with the students using their TTU email addresses. At the beginning of the semester, the instructor will send out a message to confirm the students' email addresses.
