Introduction to partial differential equations that arise in applied mathematics, physics, biological science, commerce, and engineering. First-order PDEs: the linear wave equation, method of characteristics, traffic flow models, wave breaking, and shocks. Second-order PDEs: Classification of PDEs and characteristic curves; parabolic, elliptic, and hyperbolic equations; initial and boundary value problems; separation of variables techniques; D'Alembert's solution; orthogonal functions and Sturm-Liouville theory; fundamental solutions and Green's functions
