Beyond partial differential equations: A course on linear and quasi-linear abstract hyperbolic evolution equations
by Horst R. Beyer
Publisher: arXiv 2011
Number of pages: 275
This course introduces the use of semigroup methods in the solution of linear and nonlinear (quasi-linear) hyperbolic partial differential equations, with particular application to wave equations and Hermitian hyperbolic systems. Throughout the course applications to problems from current relativistic (hyperbolic) physics are provided, which display the potential of semigroup methods in the solution of current research problems in physics.

The object of this book is to give an account of the central parts of the subject in as simple a form as possible, suitable for those with no previous knowledge of it, and to point out the different directions in which it may be developed.
