Partial Differential equation (Heat eqn)

In summary, a partial differential equation (PDE) is a mathematical equation used to describe how a function changes over space and time. The heat equation is a specific type of PDE that models the flow of heat through a material over time, and it consists of three main components: the dependent variable, the independent variables, and the differential operator. The heat equation can be solved using various mathematical techniques, and it has numerous real-world applications in fields such as physics, engineering, and finance, as well as in computer graphics.

It look little bit strange. All the points are the content of standard PDE courses
I like M Taylor PDE vol 1
