This is a one quarter course aimed at providing beginning graduate students

with a basic background in mathematical physics.

Mathematical physics is a vast and fascinating subject. A partial list of

topics that we will try to cover includes:

- ODEs

- Complex Analysis
- Special Functions
- Linear Algebra

- PDEs

- Sturm-Liouville systems

References:

Beyong the course text book, there are a number of other texts that might be worth perusing.
