Would well repay study by most theoretical physicists." — Physics Today "An overwhelming influence on subsequent work on the wave equation." — Science Progress "One of the classical treatises on hyperbolic equations." — Royal Naval Scientific Service Delivered at Columbia University and the Universities of Rome and Zürich, these lectures represent a pioneering investigation. Jacques Hadamard based his research on prior studies by Riemann, Kirchhoff, and Volterra. He extended and improved Volterra's work, applying its theories relating to spherical and cylindrical waves to all normal hyperbolic equations instead of only to one. Topics include the general properties of Cauchy's problem, the fundamental formula and the elementary solution, equations with an odd number of independent variables, and equations with an even number of independent variables and the method of descent.

Nach seinem bekannten und viel verwendeten Buch über gewöhnliche Differentialgleichungen widmet sich der berühmte Mathematiker Vladimir Arnold nun den partiellen Differentialgleichungen in einem neuen Lehrbuch. In seiner unnachahmlich eleganten Art führt er über einen geometrischen, anschaulichen Weg in das Thema ein, und ermöglicht den Lesern so ein vertieftes Verständnis der Natur der partiellen Differentialgleichungen. Für Studierende der Mathematik und Physik ist dieses Buch ein Muss. Wie alle Bücher Vladimir Arnolds ist dieses Buch voller geometrischer Erkenntnisse. Arnold illustriert jeden Grundsatz mit einer Abbildung. Das Buch behandelt die elementarsten Teile des Fachgebiets and beschränkt sich hauptsächlich auf das Cauchy-Problem und das Neumann-Problems für die klassischen Lineargleichungen der mathematischen Physik, insbesondere auf die Laplace-Gleichung und die Wellengleichung, wobei die Wärmeleitungsgleichung und die Korteweg-de-Vries-Gleichung aber ebenfalls diskutiert werden. Die physikalische Intuition wird besonders hervorgehoben. Eine große Anzahl von Problemen ist übers ganze Buch verteilt, und ein ganzer Satz von Aufgaben findet sich am Ende. Was dieses Buch so einzigartig macht, ist das besondere Talent Arnolds, ein Thema aus einer neuen, frischen Perspektive zu beleuchten. Er lüftet gerne den Schleier der Verallgemeinerung, der so viele mathematische Texte umgibt, und enthüllt die im wesentlichen einfachen, intuitiven Ideen, die dem Thema zugrunde liegen. Das kann er besser als jeder andere mathematische Autor.

Dieses richtungsweisende Lehrbuch für die Anwendung der Mathematik in anderen Wissenschaftszweigen gibt eine Einführung in die Theorie der gewöhnlichen Differentialgleichungen. Fortran und APL-Programme geben den Studenten die Möglichkeit, verschiedene numerische Näherungsverfahren an ihrem PC selbst durchzurechnen. Aus den Besprechungen: "Die Darstellung ist überall mathematisch streng und zudem ungemein anregend. Abgesehen von manchen historischen Bemerkungen ... tragen dazu die vielen mit ausführlichem Hintergrund sehr eingehend entwickelten praktischen Anwendungen bei. ... Besondere Aufmerksamkeit wird der physikalisch und technisch so wichtigen Frage nach Stabilität von Lösungen eines Systems von Differentialgleichungen gewidmet. Das Buch ist wegen seiner geringen Voraussetzungen und vorzüglichen Didaktik schon für alle Studenten des 3. Semesters geeignet; seine eminent praktische Haltung empfiehlt es aber auch für alle Physiker, die mit Differentialgleichungen und ihren Anwendungen umzugehen haben." #Physikalische Blätter#

This unusually well-written, skillfully organized introductory text provides an exhaustive survey of ordinary differential equations — equations which express the relationship between variables and their derivatives. In a disarmingly simple, step-by-step style that never sacrifices mathematical rigor, the authors — Morris Tenenbaum of Cornell University, and Harry Pollard of Purdue University — introduce and explain complex, critically-important concepts to undergraduate students of mathematics, engineering and the sciences. The book begins with a section that examines the origin of differential equations, defines basic terms and outlines the general solution of a differential equation-the solution that actually contains every solution of such an equation. Subsequent sections deal with such subjects as: integrating factors; dilution and accretion problems; the algebra of complex numbers; the linearization of first order systems; Laplace Transforms; Newton's Interpolation Formulas; and Picard's Method of Successive Approximations. The book contains two exceptional chapters: one on series methods of solving differential equations, the second on numerical methods of solving differential equations. The first includes a discussion of the Legendre Differential Equation, Legendre Functions, Legendre Polynomials, the Bessel Differential Equation, and the Laguerre Differential Equation. Throughout the book, every term is clearly defined and every theorem lucidly and thoroughly analyzed, and there is an admirable balance between the theory of differential equations and their application. An abundance of solved problems and practice exercises enhances the value of Ordinary Differential Equations as a classroom text for undergraduate students and teaching professionals. The book concludes with an in-depth examination of existence and uniqueness theorems about a variety of differential equations, as well as an introduction to the theory of determinants and theorems about Wronskians.

After going over some of the preliminaries, the authors discuss mathematical models that yield first-order partial differential equations; motivations, classifications, and some methods of solution; linear and semilinear equations; chromatographic equations with finite rate expressions; homogeneous and nonhomogeneous quasilinear equations; formation and propagation of shocks; conservation equations, weak solutions, and shock layers; nonlinear equations; and variational problems. Exercises appear at the end of most sections. This volume is geared to advanced undergraduates or first-year grad students with a sound understanding of calculus and elementary ordinary differential equations. 1986 edition. 189 black-and-white illustrations.

This book arose out of the authors' desire to present Lebesgue integration and Fourier series on an undergraduate level, since most undergraduate texts do not cover this material or do so in a cursory way. The result is a clear, concise, well-organized introduction to such topics as the Riemann integral, measurable sets, properties of measurable sets, measurable functions, the Lebesgue integral, convergence and the Lebesgue integral, pointwise convergence of Fourier series and other subjects. The authors not only cover these topics in a useful and thorough way, they have taken pains to motivate the student by keeping the goals of the theory always in sight, justifying each step of the development in terms of those goals. In addition, whenever possible, new concepts are related to concepts already in the student's repertoire. Finally, to enable readers to test their grasp of the material, the text is supplemented by numerous examples and exercises. Mathematics students as well as students of engineering and science will find here a superb treatment, carefully thought out and well presented , that is ideal for a one semester course. The only prerequisite is a basic knowledge of advanced calculus, including the notions of compactness, continuity, uniform convergence and Riemann integration.
