Second order linear parabolic and elliptic equations arise frequently in mathematical physics, biology and finance. Here the authors present a state of the art treatment of the subject from a new perspective. They then go on to discuss how the results in the book can be applied to control theory. This area is developing rapidly and there are numerous notes and references that point the reader to more specialized results not covered in the book. Coverage of some essential background material helps to make the book self contained.

Editorial Reviews

'... the authors five an almost optimal presentation: making the central ideas clear, not hiding the problems and the technical efforts needed to overcome them, and discussing in an appropriate way relations to existing work. ... it will be of enormous help to experts of PhD students starting to work in the field. The LMS Lecture Note Series has the aim of providing 'volumes [that] are short monographs giving authoritative accounts of the present state of knowledge on a topic of general interest'. The authors have done a fine job, and have successfully achieved this goal.' Niels Jacob, University of Wales, Swansea
