"You should all be reading this book; you know you can read books."

"There are no biologists in here so I can lie to you."

"A reasonable thing ... if you think about what's going on in a
chemo-stat."

"Yeah, they present it differently because they present it correctly
and I don't."

"We'll assume this mess is continuous."

"It's not an easy thing to do but it's a real problem."

"...general 2nd order LINEAR equation..."

"In reality, your rod is not infinite. But, maybe your rod looks like
it's infinite depending on what you're modeling."

"Maybe I've got an infinite tube here and somehow I can inject some
dye..."

In regards to

**real**applications of what we're studying.
"Now, the proof of this is really simple. We'll do that next time."

"Yeah, I got 'em backwards on the board."

"No, no, no! This doesn't work for every PDE!!!"

The innocent little student has his question answered rather
emphatically.

"This is the idea. That mess is a trick."

"I can't find this in the book. Let me do this real quick... I'm
going to do something really simple and it really probably doesn't
make any sense."

"I'm not even going to non-dimensionalize it. I'm going to be bad."

"If you're given any arbitrary boundary conditions, you can actually
trade them in for this kind... I actually lied."

"You take this guess and you shove it into the PDE."

"I already know that v=0 is a solution. That's not interesting."

"How do you figure out what the B's are? Well, if everything's nice
in the world then..."

"I can actually show you how you can make up your own theorems."

Excitement for the true mathematicians...

"You can study these Sturm-Liouville problems for the rest of your
life, if you'd like. --Some people do that."

"If it is positive, it is going to kill anything like that."

"This crap over here depends on f."

"I want to rewrite this thing a clever way."

"It's a finite sum. There's no sleight of hand here."

"When all the smoke settles, this turns out to be something kind of
neat."

"I guess it's such a neat trick that it gets its own name."

"If you decide to stay in math... I hope I don't discourage you from
that..."

"The g thing is going to be all of this junk."

"See, I've told you that applied math is nothing more than integration
by parts and Cramer's Rule."

"Almost anything I write down, you won't be able to integrate,
differentiate, ..."

"And, I haven't done anything, O.K.?"

"Or, like in quantum mechanics with particles moving in a
1-dimensional line... I don't want to talk about that."

"This is an easy calculation. I don't know why they don't do it in
the book."

"Then, you can just program this into the computer and ask for a
solution. Or get someone to program this on the computer if you have
an aversion to computers."

"You don't even know what these functions are. They just exist."

"The hypotheses will not be satisfied but the result in the end will
be the right answer."

"But, if we stick to the letter of the law, we are going to get
tickets here."

"So, what are we going to do here? Foobineate!"

"We ought to justify this but we can't so we'll just do it."

"Cross my fingers, hope that disappears."

"I'm not even going to non-dimentionalize this. I'm going to be bad."

"Or, like quantum mechanics, with particles moving in a
one-dimensional line; I don't want to think about that."

"What's the limit as n tends to infinity of 2 to the n? It's big."

"Alright then. So what?"

After a long proof...

"Homeomorphism. That's another big word to impress your friends."

"Newton was kind of a sharp fellow; kind of developed Calculus..."

"That's that part of that theorem I haven't written down yet."

"And I don't want to take 5 hours to find the solution, because I am
going to be dead in 3 seconds!"

"When you plug this in and do some arithmetic, you get some number."

"Well, since we have 2 seconds left, let's do another example."

"This is an art form, actually, this is why mathematicians don't do
it."

"See, look at your partner's nose, there's a cusp. See, there's a
singularity right there..."

"OK, Scotty, make it so!"

Getting his 'Trek confused?

"So I pretty much know everything."

In reference to a certain system of equations, but
it's so much more fun taken out of context...

"It's not that it's easy. I'm not claiming it's easy. I mean, it

*is*easy, but..."
"There's a lot of words in here."

Referring to the Book

"If there's any justice in the world, y prime better be negative."

"So, there's this sheep at the table, and there are some rabbits in the corner, and... does this make sense?"

"If you're a sheep, you're doomed, you're going to zero. Might take a
long time, but you're doomed. Now the

*rabbits*...The rabbits are happy."Don't you love population growth models?

"If you wanted, you could try to find the solutions to this. The usual approach is to hit it with a big hammer."

"We ought to justify this, but we can't, so we'll just do it."
