If u denotes a conserved quantity, like mass, momentum, etc., a continuum mechanical
consideration leads to pde of the form

d/dt u + div F(u) = 0.

Here, u is a function u:(0,T)xIR^n->IR^m. We present some analytical methods to get solutions
and discuss also numerical methods. We consider some applications but finally focus to
Maxwell's equation for electromagnetic waves.


By request, there is the possibility to have an oral examination.
