Primary Instructor:


Background and Goals: This is an introduction to methods of applied analysis with emphasis on Fourier analysis for differential equations. Initial and boundary value problems are covered. Students are expected to master both the proofs and applications of major results. The prerequisites include linear algebra, advanced calculus and complex variables. This course is a core course for the Applied and Intersciplinary Mathematics (AIM) graduate program. Content: Topics may vary with the instructor but often include Fourier series, separation of variables for partial differential equations, heat conduction, wave motion, electrostatic fields, Sturm-Liouville problems, Fourier transform, Green's functions, distributions, Hilbert space, complete orthonormal sets, integral operators, spectral theory for compact self-adjoint operators. Alternatives: Math 454 (Bound Val. Probs. for Part. Diff. Eq.) is an undergraduate course on the same topics Subsequent Courses: Math 557 (Methods of Applied Math II), Math 558 (Ordinary Diff. Eq.), Math 656 (Partial Differential Equations) and 658 (Ordinary Differential Equations.)
