- The Corollary 8.4 on convex sets should specify that “if every straight line (
**that includes a point on the interior of $\Omega$**) intersects $\partial\Omega$ at two points at most”. - There were some typos in the derivation of the wave equation in Chap. 10. It should instead look like this:

- Chap. 12 and the Definition 12.8 of the even extension on p.56 should read $x\in[0, L]$ instead of $x\in[0, \pi]$
- Example 15.4 should read $0 < x < \pi$ instead of $0 < x < 2$.
*(Courtesy DH)* - Eqn (16.7) should have $\lambda^2$ instead of $\lambda$ on the equation for $G$.
*(Courtesy DH)* - Theorem 18.3 should read the initial conditions of $u(x, 0) = f(x)$ and $u_t(x, 0) = g(x)$.

- PS5: Q1 should define the thermal conductivity as k not kappa.

- PS3: Bottom of the first page $\partial \phi$ should be $\nabla \phi$
- PS3: Index notation needs to be removed from the main solutions in 19-20' delivery since the topic has been moved to the Appendix. Students are still free to use the technique if they learn it (as noted in lectures).
- PS4 Q4 $dx$ and $dy$ transposed
- PS6 Q1. The function $\sin(x)\exp(-\cos(x^2))$ is indeed not periodic but not for the reasons stated in the solutions. The point here is that $\cos(x^2)$ is not a periodic function. You can verify this either by checking whether it's possible that $(x+L)^2 = x^2 + n\pi$ independent of $x$, or simply by plotting the $\cos($x^2)$ and observing its behaviour, particularly near the origin.
**PS9 Q2:**There is a missing factor of $p$ on the bottom here. See Lecture 29.**PS9 Q4:**Looks like axes were doubled here.*(Courtesy RA, HC)***PS10 Q2:**Looks like there are a few $\kappa$s missing on the right hand side (I count three);**Q3**In the redefinition of the energy (above “So now you are back to…”) there is a extra d/dt that should not be there.

- Correction to lectures 16 when I wrote “Is $\exp(\cos x)$ periodic? (No)”. Oops. It is periodic. Note that $\exp(f(x+L)) = \exp(f(x))$. A similar gaff appears in the solutions of PS6.

- 2017-18 exam Q4d. The index should start from $n = 1$ once the $2n+1$ shift is done.
