Partial differential equations by Fritz John( Book )

107 editions published between 1953 and 2009 in 6 languages and held by 2,216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a very well-accepted 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
Introduction to calculus and analysis by Richard Courant( Book )

163 editions published between 1965 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 1,789 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The new Chapter 1 contains all the fundamental properties of linear differential forms and their integrals. These prepare the reader for the introduction to higher-order exterior differential forms added to Chapter 3. Also found now in Chapter 3 are a new proof of the implicit function theorem by successive approximations and a discus sion of numbers of critical points and of indices of vector fields in two dimensions. Extensive additions were made to the fundamental properties of multiple integrals in Chapters 4 and 5. Here one is faced with a familiar difficulty: integrals over a manifold M, defined easily enough by subdividing M into convenient pieces, must be shown to be inde pendent of the particular subdivision. This is resolved by the sys tematic use of the family of Jordan measurable sets with its finite intersection property and of partitions of unity. In order to minimize topological complications, only manifolds imbedded smoothly into Euclidean space are considered. The notion of "orientation" of a manifold is studied in the detail needed for the discussion of integrals of exterior differential forms and of their additivity properties. On this basis, proofs are given for the divergence theorem and for Stokes's theorem in n dimensions. To the section on Fourier integrals in Chapter 4 there has been added a discussion of Parseval's identity and of multiple Fourier integrals
Plane waves and spherical means applied to partial differential equations by Fritz John( Book )

44 editions published between 1955 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 762 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
Lectures on advanced numerical analysis by Fritz John( Book )

23 editions published between 1966 and 1967 in 4 languages and held by 512 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nonlinear wave equations, formation of singularities by Fritz John( Book )

16 editions published between 1990 and 1997 in English and held by 324 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the second volume in the University Lecture Series, designed to make more widely available some of the outstanding lectures presented in various institutions around the country. Each year at Lehigh University, a distinguished mathematical scientist presents the Pitcher Lectures in the Mathematical Sciences. This volume contains the Pitcher lectures presented by Fritz John in April 1989. The lectures deal with existence in the large of solutions of initial value problems for nonlinear hyperbolic partial differential equations. As is typical with nonlinear problems, there are many result

Miscellanea mathematica by Michael Francis Atiyah( )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 59 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 life-long support of mathematics
