*Textbook* —
"Partial Differential Equations (with Fourier Series and Boundary
Value Problems)", by Nakhlé H. Asmar, Second Edition.
The author provides a student solutions manual in his
webpage (http://www.math.missouri.edu/~nakhle/).

*Course Description* —
The course is a basic introduction to partial differential
equations in two or fewer space variables.
Main topics: Fourier series and boundary-value problems for the
wave, heat, and Laplace equations, separation of variables, Bessel
functions, and Fourier transform.
We will cover sections 1.1-1.2, 2.1-2.4, 3.1-3.8, 4.1-4.4, and
7.1-7.4 of the textbook.
A tentative schedule can be found hereat
http://www.math.utah.edu/~docampo/math3150/syllabus.html.

*Grading* —
There will be weekly homework assignments, three in-class midterms,
and a comprehensive final exam. The homework will count for 20% of
the grade, the midterms for 50%, and the final exam for 30%.
