### Sobolev Space Reading Course

Together with Nathan Willis, I am co-organising a reading course about Sobolev space in Fall 2018. This is a graduate-student led reading course with guidance from Fernando Guevara Vasquez, Christel Hohenegger, and Akil Narayan. The textbook is L. C. Evans "Partial Differential Equations". The plan is to read Chapter 5 (Sobolev spaces) and if time permits, Chapter 6 (second-order elliptic PDEs). We meet Thursday from 1-3PM in JWB 108. The lectures are intended to be approximately 1.5 hours a week, follow by 30 minutes for questions and discussion.**August 30: Chee Han**, Section 5.2 [Notes]

**September 6 - Chee Han**, Section 5.3, Appendix C.4 [Notes]

**September 13 - Huy**, Section 5.4, Appendix C.1 [Notes]

**September 20 - Zexin**, Section 5.5

**September 27 - Dihan**, Section 5.6.1 [Notes]

**October 4 - China**, Section 5.6.2

**October 18 - Rebecca**, Section 5.7

**October 25 - Nathan**, Section 5.8.1 and 5.8.2 [Notes]

**November 1 - Nathan**, Section 5.8.3 and 5.8.4 [Notes]

**November 8 - Huy**, Section 5.9

**November 15 - Zexin**, Section 6.2.2

**November 29 - China**, Section 6.2.3

**December 6 - Rebecca**
