Description

Since the first volume of this work came out in Germany in 1937, this book, together with its first volume, has remained standard in the field. Courant and Hilbert's treatment restores the historically deep connections between physical intuition and mathematical development, providing the reader with a unified approach to mathematical physics. The present volume represents Richard Courant's final revision of 1961.
General Theory of Partial Differential Equations of First Order.

Differential Equations of Higher Order.

Potential Theory and Elliptic Differential Equations.

Hyperbolic Differential Equations in Two Independent Variables.

Hyperbolic Differential Equations in More than Two Independent Variables.
