 Classification of secondorder PDE: elliptic, parabolic, and hyperbolic equations
 Functional spaces: Lebesgue and Sobolev spaces
 Elliptic PDE. Spectral theory of elliptic PDE. Regularity of solutions.
 Hyperbolic PDE. Classical solutions. Initial boundaryvalue problems. Fourier method.
 Parabolic PDE. Classical solutions. Initial boundaryvalue problems. Fourier method.
