The basis of this graduate-level textbook is a careful survey of a wide range of problems affecting the solution of linear partial differential equations. The book begins with a fairly elementary introduction to the theory of Fourier series of continuous functions and goes on to describe the fundamental theory of linear partial differential equations of elliptic and hyperbolic types, equations of evolution, semi-linear hyperbolic equations and selected topics on Green's functions and spectra of some special operators. The book is intended for use by pure mathematicians in functional analysis. The selection of material is interesting and differs from existing literature in European languages. This paperback edition will make it particularly attractive to graduate students in pure and applied mathematics.
