Partial Differential Equations play an important role in natural sciences and engineering. Stationary processes can be modelled by differential equations that involve more than one spatial variable, e.g. equations for membrans or electrostatic and gravitational potentials. The equations can also include time derivatives to describe transient processes like growth processes, wave propagation, heat transfer or fluid flow. In this introductory lecture the three most important types of second order PDEs are presented: elliptic, parabolic and hyperbolic equations. Explicit solution techniques and the qualitative baviour of solutions is discussed. Special knowledge of results from functional analysis is not required.
