Partial Differential Equations II - MAT4848

Honours Year module NQF level: 8 Credits: 12
Module presented in English Module presented online
Co-requisite: MAT4847
Purpose: To provide the students with knowledge of advanced analytical techniques of solving partial differential equations of mathematical physics. On completing this module the students will be able to construct and solve partial differential equations using advanced methods which amongst others include zeros of Sturm-Liouville eigenfunctions, Rayleigh quotient, method of eigenfunction expansion using Green's functions and method of characteristics. Prior knowledge of the sister module Partial Differential Equations I is assumed.
