Learning Objectives

1. Give the basic elements of the partial differential equations of mathematical physics (I module).

2. Understanding of physical phenomena governed by partial differential equations; Construction of mathematical models: equations of the waves, heat, Laplace equation.

3. Understanding of the different solution methods: why it has been proposed a solution method? What are some other alternative methods? Understanding how the analytical solutions obtained are interpreting the physical real situations (wellposedness of the models or paradoxes).

4. It will be privileged the undertsnding the physical part, the models and their analytical solution.
