Nonlinear partial differential equations for scientists and engineers. 2nd ed. (English) Zbl 1069.35001
Boston, MA: Birkhäuser (ISBN 0-8176-4323-0/hbk). xxii, 737 p. (2005).
This is a revised and expanded version of the 1997 first edition [(1997; Zbl 0892.35001)]. There have been included new examples, exercises, comments and even sections, for example about Sturm-Liouville systems, higher dimensional wave and diffusion equations, fractional PDEs, the Euler-Lagrange and Hamiltonian variational principles, new classes of dispersive evolution equations and about asymptotic expansions and the method of multiple scales. The bibliography has been updated.
