Nonlinear PDEs Explained

Date Friday, February 14, 2014

This is an expository talk on nonlinear partial differential equations (PDEs), largely motivated by the excellent expository talks in the Geometry/Topology seminars. Some of the topics touched upon include: derivations of nonlinear PDEs, weak solutions, function spaces, inequalities and compactness. No prior exposure to PDEs is assumed.
