Partial Differential Equations I
AS.110.631 (01)

This course is the first in the sequence about the general theory of PDEs.

Then we will describe the basic theory of Sobolev spaces and the standard existence theory for (initial) boundary value problems of elliptic/parabolic type. Finally, the rest of the course will be devoted to finer properties of solutions of elliptic equations such as maximum principles, Harnack principles and regularity.

What is... Seminar
AS.110.710 (01)

This is a professional development course for graduate students, where they will learn, practice, or enhance their skills at giving math talks. The course will run in the format of a "What is... Seminar", where each week one of the participants will present a 1 hour talk on an accessible and relatively self-contained topic, titled What is (insert your math notion of choice). In preparation for their talk, students will meet with the instructor at least once, where they will receive guidance and detailed advice to help them give a great talk. Although the definition of a "great talk" is subjective, participants should be willing to follow the instructors' advice. Graduate students at any stage of their PhD are encouraged to attend, regardless of their experience giving talks.

Topics in Mathematical Physics
AS.110.712 (01)

The course will be about scattering for Nonlinear Klein Gordon, Nonlinear Schroedinger and Nonlinear wave equations with variable coefficients in one space dimension. The ultimate goal is to show stability of stationary solutions, so called kinks, as well as moving soliton solutions for certain nonlinear equations of mathematical physics. Recently there has been a lot of activity in this area which uses some interesting math like spectral theory, estimates of Fourier Multipliers, twisted Fourier transform,... in order to study operators with variable coefficients.
