MSCS Research Seminar:
Solving Partial Differential Equations using the Unified Transform Method
Natalie Sheils, Visiting Assistant Professor at the University of Minnesota
Classical methods for solving linear partial differential equations with constant coefficients rely on separation of variables and specific integral transforms.  These methods are limited to specific equations with special boundary conditions.  In my talk I will introduce the Unified Transform Method, due to Fokas, which contains the classical solutions as special cases.  This method also allows for explicit solutions of problems which cannot be solved using classical techniques.  I will provide examples of problems on the half-line and on the finite interval.
3:30pm, RNS 204
