The syllabus is available here: syllabus.pdf
Weekly homeworks (20%), three midterms (20% each) and a comprehensive final exam (20%).
Solutions for the optional HW10 are here: pdehw010.pdf.
Here is a preliminary version of the formula sheet you will have for the exam: formulas.pdf.
besselzeros.m
which can be found here (see precomp_besseljzeros.m).Today we covered Section 4.1 on the Laplacian on different coordinate systems and we got started with the wave equation on circular regions (section 4.2). Lecture notes are here: pde010.pdf.
The solutions to HW3 are available here: pdehw003.pdf.
We covered section 2.3 on the Fourier series with arbitrary period and the cosine and sine series. The notes are here: pde004.pdf.
The math department provides (free) tutoring for this class in the T. Benny Rushing Mathematics Center. Here are the tutors that are most likely to help you with Math 3150:

Class notes for lecture 1 are available here: pde001.pdf. We covered essentially 1.1,1.2 and 3.1 in the book. Plan for lecture 2: finish 1.2, 2.1 and 2.2.
The author of the textbook provides a solutions manual. Homework problems that are copied from this manual will not have credit.
