This course also forms part of the first year programme of the CCA, where it is supplemented with extra projects of a more advanced nature. Midterm assignments for CCA students are available here. (Midterm presentations took place on Monday 7 November 2016.) The four longer assignments for CCA students are given below:

Some significant parts of these lecture notes are borrowed from some lecture notes previously written by Mihalis Dafermos for this CCA course, and from some lecture notes I wrote for a similar course I gave in Paris-Dauphine 2006-2009. The lecture notes are also strongly inspired by the books of C. Evans, E. Lieb & M. Loss, W. Strauss, F. John, by the review paper Partial differential equations of S. Klainerman, and by various lecture notes available online by L. Boutet de Monvel, B. Driver, B. Helffer, G. Tsogtgerel and C. Villani.
