  • Book Details
     
     
    Graduate Studies in Mathematics
    Volume: 2052020; 319 pp
    MSC: Primary 35

    This book is based on notes from a beginning graduate course on partial differential equations. Prerequisites for using the book are a solid undergraduate course in real analysis. There are more than 100 exercises in the book. Some of them are just exercises, whereas others, even though they do require new ideas to solve them, provide additional important information about the subject.

    Readership

    Graduate students interested in partial differential equations.

    • It is a great pleasure to see this book—written by a great master of the subject—finally in print. This treatment of a core part of mathematics and its applications offers the student both a solid foundation in basic calculations techniques in the subject, as well as a basic introduction to the more general machinery, e.g., distributions, Sobolev spaces, etc., which are such a key part of any modern treatment. As such this book is ideal for more advanced undergraduates as well as mathematically inclined students from engineering or the natural sciences. Shubin has a lovely intuitive writing style which provides a gentle introduction to this beautiful subject. Many good exercises (and solutions) are provided!

    • This text provides an excellent semester's introduction to classical and modern topics in linear PDE, suitable for students with a background in advanced calculus and Lebesgue integration. The author intersperses treatments of the Laplace, heat, and wave equations with developments of various functional analytic tools, particularly distribution theory and spectral theory, introducing key concepts while deftly avoiding heavy technicalities.
