MATH20411 PDEs and Vector Calculus B

General information

This course is taught by Dr Stefan Güttel. My office hour is Monday 15–16 in ATB 2.114. The teaching times are as follows: This is a 10 credit course.

Lecture notes

The lecture notes should be used to supplement your own notes taken in lectures. (It is highly recommended that you take your own notes.)

Example sheets

The example sheets below contain exercises for you to attempt before the tutorials. As a guideline, there is one example sheet to complete for each week. The tutorials are intended to answer your questions on these exercises. The solutions will be posted only when all exercises have been attempted.

Handouts and MATLAB codes

The handouts below contain additional material to be read between lectures. They are meant to be used as a preparation for the lectures and should be read before the week indicated in each bullet point. The MATLAB codes will further help you to experiment with PDEs.


The above course materials are self-contained and you do not need to buy any textbooks. We will study several basic topics in calculus and applied mathematics, which are covered in hundreds of available texts in the library. The following books all contain some material you will meet in the course.
