I have some questions about the kind of math involved in some physics equations . Someone said many physics equations involve Ordinary and Partial differential equations What sort of Ordinary or Partial differential equations are involved in Maxwell equations and Schrodinger equations ? These are some rough notes i made while trying to learn differential equations and programming I am not sure if the things i wrote down are right ? Quote:

For physicists the variables are whatever is being considered, such as time, length, energy, etc. The mathematical treatment doesn't require any knowledge of physical meaning.
