This volume offers an expanded version of lectures given at the Courant Institute on the theory of Sobolev spaces on Riemannian manifolds. ``Several surprising phenomena appear when studying Sobolev spaces on manifolds,'' according to the author. ``Questions that are elementary for Euclidean space become challenging and give rise to sophisticated mathematics, where the geometry of the manifold plays a central role.'' The volume is organized into nine chapters. Chapter 1 offers a brief introduction to differential and Riemannian geometry. Chapter 2 deals with the general theory of Sobolev spaces for compact manifolds. Chapter 3 presents the general theory of Sobolev spaces for complete, noncompact manifolds. Best constants problems for compact manifolds are discussed in Chapters 4 and 5. Chapter 6 presents special types of Sobolev inequalities under constraints. Best constants problems for complete noncompact manifolds are discussed in Chapter 7. Chapter 8 deals with Euclidean-type Sobolev inequalities. And Chapter 9 discusses the influence of symmetries on Sobolev embeddings. An appendix offers brief notes on the case of manifolds with boundaries. This topic is a field undergoing great development at this time. However, several important questions remain open. So a substantial part of the book is devoted to the concept of best constants, which appeared to be crucial for solving limiting cases of some classes of PDEs. The volume is highly self-contained. No familiarity is assumed with differentiable manifolds and Riemannian geometry, making the book accessible to a broad audience of readers, including graduate students and researchers.

Sobolev spaces play an outstanding role in modern analysis, in particular, in the theory of partial differential equations and its applications in mathematical physics. They form an indispensable tool in approximation theory, spectral theory, differential geometry etc. The theory of these spaces is of interest in itself being a beautiful domain of mathematics. The present volume includes basics on Sobolev spaces, approximation and extension theorems, embedding and compactness theorems, their relations with isoperimetric and isocapacitary inequalities, capacities with applications to spectral theory of elliptic differential operators as well as pointwise inequalities for derivatives. The selection of topics is mainly influenced by the author’s involvement in their study, a considerable part of the text is a report on his work in the field. Part of this volume first appeared in German as three booklets of Teubner-Texte zur Mathematik (1979, 1980). In the Springer volume “Sobolev Spaces”, published in English in 1985, the material was expanded and revised. The present 2nd edition is enhanced by many recent results and it includes new applications to linear and nonlinear partial differential equations. New historical comments, five new chapters and a significantly augmented list of references aim to create a broader and modern view of the area.

Function Spaces and Partial Differential Equations

Category: Differential equations, Partial

Page: 480

This is a book written primarily for graduate students and early researchers in the fields of Analysis and Partial Differential Equations (PDEs). Coverage of the material is essentially self-contained, extensive and novel with great attention to details and rigour. The strength of the book primarily lies in its clear and detailed explanations, scope and coverage, highlighting and presenting deep and profound inter-connections between different related and seemingly unrelated disciplines within classical and modern mathematics and above all the extensive collection of examples, worked-out and hinted exercises. There are well over 700 exercises of varying level leading the reader from the basics to the most advanced levels and frontiers of research. The book can be used either for independent study or for a year-long graduate level course. In fact it has its origin in a year-long graduate course taught by the author in Oxford in 2004-5 and various parts of it in other institutions later on. A good number of distinguished researchers and faculty in mathematics worldwide have started their research career from the course that formed the basis for this book.

Dieses Lehr- und Handbuch behandelt sowohl die elementaren Konzepte als auch die fortgeschrittenen und zukunftsweisenden linearen und nichtlinearen FE-Methoden in Statik, Dynamik, Festkörper- und Fluidmechanik. Es wird sowohl der physikalische als auch der mathematische Hintergrund der Prozeduren ausführlich und verständlich beschrieben. Das Werk enthält eine Vielzahl von ausgearbeiteten Beispielen, Rechnerübungen und Programmlisten. Als Übersetzung eines erfolgreichen amerikanischen Lehrbuchs hat es sich in zwei Auflagen auch bei den deutschsprachigen Ingenieuren etabliert. Die umfangreichen Änderungen gegenüber der Vorauflage innerhalb aller Kapitel - vor allem aber der fortgeschrittenen - spiegeln die rasche Entwicklung innerhalb des letzten Jahrzehnts auf diesem Gebiet wieder.

Vorlesungen über partielle Differentialgleichungen

Nach seinem bekannten und viel verwendeten Buch über gewöhnliche Differentialgleichungen widmet sich der berühmte Mathematiker Vladimir Arnold nun den partiellen Differentialgleichungen in einem neuen Lehrbuch. In seiner unnachahmlich eleganten Art führt er über einen geometrischen, anschaulichen Weg in das Thema ein, und ermöglicht den Lesern so ein vertieftes Verständnis der Natur der partiellen Differentialgleichungen. Für Studierende der Mathematik und Physik ist dieses Buch ein Muss. Wie alle Bücher Vladimir Arnolds ist dieses Buch voller geometrischer Erkenntnisse. Arnold illustriert jeden Grundsatz mit einer Abbildung. Das Buch behandelt die elementarsten Teile des Fachgebiets and beschränkt sich hauptsächlich auf das Cauchy-Problem und das Neumann-Problems für die klassischen Lineargleichungen der mathematischen Physik, insbesondere auf die Laplace-Gleichung und die Wellengleichung, wobei die Wärmeleitungsgleichung und die Korteweg-de-Vries-Gleichung aber ebenfalls diskutiert werden. Die physikalische Intuition wird besonders hervorgehoben. Eine große Anzahl von Problemen ist übers ganze Buch verteilt, und ein ganzer Satz von Aufgaben findet sich am Ende. Was dieses Buch so einzigartig macht, ist das besondere Talent Arnolds, ein Thema aus einer neuen, frischen Perspektive zu beleuchten. Er lüftet gerne den Schleier der Verallgemeinerung, der so viele mathematische Texte umgibt, und enthüllt die im wesentlichen einfachen, intuitiven Ideen, die dem Thema zugrunde liegen. Das kann er besser als jeder andere mathematische Autor.
