This is the second semester in a year long graduate course in ordinary and partial differential equations. In this course, along with Math 6410, we shall try to cover the syllabus for the qualifying exam in differential equations. Although some mathematical sophistication is required to take the course, we shall provide any background materials needed by the class.

We shall follow McOwen's text covering first order equations, distributions, wave-heat-Laplace equations, L2-theory, energy methods, Sobolev spaces, regularity theory. Topics include (depending on time):
