# Linear Holomorphic Partial Differential Equations and Classical Potential Theory

Share this page
*Dmitry Khavinson; Erik Lundberg*

Why do solutions of linear analytic PDE
suddenly break down? What is the source of these mysterious
singularities, and how do they propagate? Is there a mean value
property for harmonic functions in ellipsoids similar to that for
balls? Is there a reflection principle for harmonic functions in higher
dimensions similar to the Schwarz reflection principle in the plane?
How far outside of their natural domains can solutions of the
Dirichlet problem be extended? Where do the continued solutions become
singular and why?

This book invites graduate students and young analysts to explore
these and many other intriguing questions that lead to beautiful
results illustrating a nice interplay between parts of modern analysis
and themes in “physical” mathematics of the nineteenth
century. To make the book accessible to a wide audience including
students, the authors do not assume expertise in the theory of
holomorphic PDE, and most of the book is accessible to anyone familiar
with multivariable calculus and some basics in complex analysis and
differential equations.

#### Readership

Graduate students and researchers interested in PDE, especially in holomorphic linear PDE.

#### Reviews & Endorsements

The book is written in a friendly but rigorous way and is aimed at good graduate students and young analysts.
