It is a textbook for an introductory graduate direction on partial differential equations. Han makes a speciality of linear equations of first and moment order. an enormous characteristic of his remedy is that most of the recommendations are appropriate extra as a rule. specifically, Han emphasizes a priori estimates through the textual content, even for these equations that may be solved explicitly. Such estimates are vital instruments for proving the lifestyles and strong point of ideas to PDEs, being specially vital for nonlinear equations. The estimates also are the most important to developing homes of the strategies, comparable to the continual dependence on parameters.

Han's ebook is acceptable for college students attracted to the mathematical concept of partial differential equations, both as an summary of the topic or as an advent resulting in extra study.

Readership: complicated undergraduate and graduate scholars drawn to PDEs.

Example text

We consider ut + uX= 0 in Il8 x (0, oo), onTR. It is easy to verify that {t = 0} is noncharacteristic. The characteristic ODE and corresponding initial values are given by dt dx ds 1' ds 1' and t(0) = 0. Here, both x and t are treated as functions of s. Hence x(0) = XO, x=s+xp, t=s. By eliminating s, we have x - t=xo. This is a straight line containing (xo, 0) and with a slope 1. Along this straight line, u is constant. Hence u(x,t) = uo(x - t). 1. With t as time, the graph of the solution represents a wave propagating to the right with velocity 1 without changing shape.

For a general firstorder nonlinear PDE, the corresponding ordinary differential system consists of 2n + 1 equations for 2n +1 functions x, u and Du. Here, we need to take into account the gradient of u by adding n more equations for Du. In other words, we regard our first-order nonlinear PDE as a relation for (u, p) with a constraint p = Du. We should emphasize that this is a unique feature for single first-order PDEs. For PDEs of higher order or for first-order partial differential systems, nonlinear equations are dramatically different from linear equations.

A natural question here is whether there exists a global solution for globally defined a and uo. There are several reasons that local solutions cannot be extended globally. First, u(x) cannot be evaluated at x E I[8n if x is not on an integral curve from the initial hypersurface, or equivalently, the integral curve from x does not intersect the initial hypersurface. Second, u(x) cannot be evaluated at x E Il8n if the integral curve starting from x intersects the initial hypersurface more than once.
