Description: Theory of initial/boundary value problems for second-order elliptic, parabolic, and hyperbolic equations. DeGiorgi-Nash-Moser regularity theory for second-order elliptic partial differenial equations. Selected topics in nonlinear partial differential equations, including the calculus of variaitions, and optimal control and viscosity solutions. Provided there is time, we may discuss approximation schemes for viscosity solutions, and the theory of viscosity solutions for second order degenerate elliptic equations.
