**Lectures on Elliptic Partial Differential Equations**

by

**J.L. Lions**-

**Tata Institute of Fundamental Research**

In these lectures we study the boundary value problems associated with elliptic equation by using essentially L2 estimates (or abstract analogues of such estimates). We consider only linear problem, and we do not study the Schauder estimates.
