In this introductory lecture to the theory of Partial Differential Equations we start by studying the three model equations:

- the Laplace equation

- the heat equation

- the wave equation

in a classical setting. Once this is done we show the existence and regularity of weak solutions of more general elliptic PDE's in Sobolev spaces.
