*Gui-Qiang Chen; George Gasper; Joseph Jerome*

The Emphasis Year on Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations and Related
Analysis at Northwestern University produced this fine collection of original
research and survey articles. Many well-known mathematicians attended the
events and submitted their contributions for this volume.

Eighteen papers comprise this work, representing the most significant advances
and current trends in nonlinear PDEs and their applications. Topics covered
include elliptic and parabolic equations, Navier Stokes equations, and
hyperbolic conservation laws. Important applications are presented from
incompressible and compressible fluid mechanics, combustion, and
electromagnetism. Also included are articles on recent advances in statistical
reliability in modeling, simulation, level set methods for image processing,
shock waves, free boundaries, boundary layers, errors in numerical solutions,
stability, instability, and singular limits.

The volume is suitable for researchers and graduate students interested in
partial differential equations.
