Elements of partial differential equations by
Ian Naismith Sneddon(
Book
)
55 editions published between 1957 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 903 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Geared toward students of applied rather than pure mathematics, this volume introduces elements of partial differential equations. Its focus is primarily upon finding solutions to particular equations rather than general theory. Topics include ordinary differential equations in more than two variables, partial differential equations of the first and second orders, Laplace's equation, the wave equation, and the diffusion equation. A helpful Appendix offers information on systems of surfaces, and solutions to the oddnumbered problems appear at the end of the book. Readers pursuing independent study will particularly appreciate the worked examples that appear throughout the text

Wave mechanics and its applications by
N. F Mott(
Book
)
51 editions published between 1948 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 740 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This is an exposition of the theory of quantum mechanics which progresses in accordance with the physical problems considered, rather than a logically organized mathematical introduction to the subject. Nevertheless it is a remarkably complete presentation. It places emphasis on the physical interpretation of the mathematical methods involved, and thus makes it easy for the student to understand the primary influences at work in shaping the substance of modern quantum mechanics. The book treats many topics which are difficult to find elsewhere at the elementary level on which they are discussed here."Back cover

A course of higher mathematics. Integration and functional analysis by
V. I Smirnov(
Book
)
7 editions published in 1964 in English and Undetermined and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
International Series of Monographs in Pure and Applied Mathematics, Volume 62: A Course of Higher Mathematics, V: Integration and Functional Analysis focuses on the theory of functions. The book first discusses the Stieltjes integral. Concerns include sets and their powers, Darboux sums, improper Stieltjes integral, jump functions, Helly's theorem, and selection principles. The text then takes a look at set functions and the Lebesgue integral. Operations on sets, measurable sets, properties of closed and open sets, criteria for measurability, and exterior measure and its properties are discuss

Systems of conservation laws by
D Serre(
Book
)
5 editions published between 1999 and 2003 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Systems of conservation laws arise naturally in physics and chemistry. To understand them and their consequences (shock waves, finite velocity wave propagation) properly in mathematical terms requires, however, knowledge of a broad range of topics. This book sets up the foundations of the modern theory of conservation laws, describing the physical models and mathematical methods, leading to the Glimm scheme. Building on this the author then takes the reader to the current state of knowledge in the subject. The maximum principle is considered from the viewpoint of numerical schemes and also in terms of viscous approximation. Small waves are studied using geometrical optics methods. Finally, the initialboundary problem is considered in depth. Throughout, the presentation is reasonably selfcontained, with large numbers of exercises and full discussion of all the ideas. This will make it ideal as a text for graduate courses in the area of partial differential equations
