All partial differential equations that describe physical phenomena in space-time can be cast into a universal quasilinear, first-order form. We describe some broad features of systems of differential equations so formulated.

This course introduces the use of semigroup methods in the solution of linear and nonlinear (quasi-linear) hyperbolic partial differential equations, with particular application to wave equations and Hermitian hyperbolic systems.
