This is a fairly standard textbook on Partial Differential Equations. Most of it is standard undergraduate fare, with only a few sections dealing with more advanced material. The suggested 12 week syllabus would be difficult with most undergraduates, but quite feasible with a first-year graduate course.
Maeve McCarthy is Professor of Mathematics at Murray State University in Kentucky.
