Boundary value problems and partial differential equations. 6th updated ed. (English) Zbl 1187.35001
Amsterdam: Elsevier/Academic Press (ISBN 978-0-12-374719-8/hbk). xi, 506 p. (2010).
The fifth edition has been reviewed in Zbl 1107.35001.
From the Preface: “For this sixth edition, I have made changes in response to students’ changing needs and abilities. Many sections have been edited to improve clarity and make solution processes more explicit. Solving potential problems sketching solutions of the wave equation using d’Alembert’s solution get additional attention. In several sections, exercises have been reorganized more logically, old ones revised and new ones added. Many exercises are based on research publications from areas as diverse as chemical, civil, environmental, electrical, mechanical and rehabilitation engineering, physics and finance…
To accompany this edition, the publisher is maintaining a web site with auxiliary materials: animations of convergence of Fourier series; animations of solutions of the heat and wave equations as well as ordinary initial value problems; color graphics of solutions of potential problems; additional exercises in a workbook style; review questions for each chapter. All files are readable with just a browser and Adobe Reader.”
