**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.

**Course Outline:**

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.

**Examination Schedule:**

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.

**Critical Dates:**

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.
