Partial differential equations by
Fritz John(
Book
)
147 editions published between 1952 and 2009 in 6 languages and held by 2,273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book is a very wellaccepted introduction to the subject. In it, the author identifies the significant aspects of the theory and explores them with a limited amount of machinery from mathematical analysis. Now, in this fourth edition, the book has again been updated with an additional chapter on Lewy' s example of a linear equation without solutions

)
43 editions published between 1955 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 625 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This collection of results on partial differential equations employs certain elementary identities for plane and spherical integrals of an arbitrary function, showing how a variety of results on fairly general differential equations follow from those identities. Explores the decomposition of arbitrary functions into functions of the type of plane waves; Radon transformation; more. 1955 edition

Biography of Richard Courant Richard Courant was born in 1888 in a small town of what is now Poland, and died in New Rochelle, N.Y. in 1972. He received his doctorate from the legendary David Hilbert in Göttingen, where later he founded and directed its famed mathematics Institute, a Mecca for mathematicians in the twenties. In 1933 the Nazi government dismissed Courant for being Jewish, and he emigrated to the United States. He found, in New York, what he called "a reservoir of talent" to be tapped. He built, at New York University, a new mathematical Sciences Institute that shares the philosophy of its illustrious predecessor and rivals it in worldwide influence. For Courant mathematics was an adventure, with applications forming a vital part. This spirit is reflected in his books, in particular in his influential calculus text, revised in collaboration with his brilliant younger colleague, Fritz John. (P.D. Lax) Biography of Fritz John Fritz John was born on June 14, 1910, in Berlin. After his school years in Danzig (now Gdansk, Poland), he studied in Göttingen and received his doctorate in 1933, just when the Nazi regime came to power. As he was halfJewish and his bride Aryan, he had to flee Germany in 1934. After a year in Cambridge, UK, he accepted a position at the University of Kentucky, and in 1946 joined Courant, Friedrichs and Stoker in building up New York University the institute that later became the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences. He remained there until his death in New Rochelle on February 10, 1994. John's research and the books he wrote had a strong impact on the development of many fields of mathematics, foremost in partial differential equations. He also worked on Radon transforms, illposed problems, convex geometry, numerical analysis, elasticity theory. In connection with his work in latter field, he and Nirenberg introduced the space of the BMOfunctions (bounded mean oscillations). Fritz John's work exemplifies the unity of mathematics as well as its elegance and its beauty. (J. Moser)

This will be the 100th volume of the Applied Mathematical Sciences series. In order to mark the occasion, this special volume has been created which will impact in an important way on the community that practices and is served by applied mathematics. Ten leading figures in the field present their own perspective of applied mathematics. The articles that are collected in this volume bear testimony to both the vitality and diversity of the subject. The contributors included here are: V.I. Arnol'd, Peter Constantin, Mitchell J. Feigenbaum, Martin Golubitsky, Daniel D. Joseph, Leo P. Kadanoff, HeinzOtto Kreiss, H.P. McKean, Jerrold Marsden, and Roger Temam. The articles cover such topics as: mathematical problems in classical physics; geometric and analytic studies in turbulence; viscous and viscoelastic potential flow; difference methods for time dependent partial differential equations; geometric mechanics, stability and control. This special volume will be dedicated to Fritz John. John is one of the earliest advisors for the Springer Verlag mathematics program, which includes his capacity as a series editor for the Applied Mathematical Sciences series. This volume appears in his honor

Miscellanea mathematica by

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Mathematics has a certain mystique, for it is pure and ex act, yet demands remarkable creativity. This reputation is reinforced by its characteristic abstraction and its own in dividual language, which often disguise its origins in and connections with the physical world. Publishing mathematics, therefore, requires special effort and talent. Heinz Gotze, who has dedicated his life to scientific pu blishing, took up this challenge with his typical enthusi asm. This Festschrift celebrates his invaluable contribu tions to the mathematical community, many of whose leading members he counts among his personal friends. The articles, written by mathematicians from around the world and coming from diverse fields, portray the important role of mathematics in our culture. Here, the reflections of important mathematicians, often focused on the history of mathematics, are collected, in recognition of Heinz Gotze's lifelong support of mathematics
