Some Brief Mathematical Notes

Prof. Steven G. Johnson, Dept. of Mathematics, MIT


Below are some brief notes I've written up for my students and for use in my courses, especially 18.369 (Mathematical Methods in Nanophotonics) and 18.336 (Numerical Methods for PDEs).

For the most part, they are reviews and introductions to topics that appear in the literature, but may not have a compact pedagogical presentation that includes all of the information that I would like my students to be aware of. The references in the notes are by no means exhaustive (these are not formal review papers), but I try to give at least a pointer or two for more information.
