Elliptic Partial Differential Equations of Second Order

From the reviews: "This is a book of interest to any having to work with differential equations, either as a reference or as a book to learn from. The authors have taken trouble to make the treatment self-contained. It (is) suitable required reading for a

David Gilbarg was born in New York in 1918, and was educated there through undergraduate school. He received his Ph.D. degree at Indiana University in 1941. His work in fluid dynamics during the war years motivated much of his later research on flows with free boundaries. He was on the Mathematics Faculty at Indiana University from 1946 to 1957 and at Stanford University from 1957 on. His principal interests and contributions have been in mathematical fluid dynamics and the theory of elliptic partial differential equations.

Neil S. Trudinger was born in Ballarat, Australia in 1942. After schooling and undergraduate education in Australia, he completed his Ph.D. at Stanford University, USA in 1966. He has been a Professor of Mathematics at the Australian National University, Canberra since 1973. His research contributions, while largely focused on non-linear elliptic partial differentipl equations, have also spread into geometry, functional analysis and computational mathematics. Among honours received are Fellowships of the Australian Academy of Science and of the Royal Society of London.
