16:640:518 - Partial Differential Equations II

Spring 2022

Dennis Kriventsov

Description:

This course is a continuation of 517, PDE I. The goal of this semester is to consider a variety of equations studied today, and look at various techniques being applied to them. We will review Sobolev spaces, spend time on various methods for elliptic regularity (including Calderon-Zygmund theory), and discuss various notions of weak and viscosity solutions. We will also consider methods in the calculus of variations and dispersive equations. The specific topics and equations covered will depend heavily on student interest.
