Editorial Reviews


From the reviews:

“This book studies the asymptotic behavior of solutions to some nonlinear evolution problems by using rescaling … methods with self-similar solutions … . not only are there exercises but also answers to these exercises. In any case this book is a very welcome and useful addition to the literature.” (Jesús Hernández, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2011 f)

“The book presents typical methods … for the examination of the behavior of solutions of nonlinear partial differential equations of diffusion type. … The aim of the authors was to teach the readers to deal with such tools during the study of PDEs and to give them a strong motivation for their study. … The book is written in a very pedagogical way. Each chapter contains plenty of exercises whose detailed solutions can be found at the end of the book.” (Pavol Quittner, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1215, 2011)

From the Back Cover

The main focus of this textbook, in two parts, is on showing how self-similar solutions are useful in studying the behavior of solutions of nonlinear partial differential equations, especially those of parabolic type. The exposition moves systematically from the basic to more sophisticated concepts with recent developments and several open problems.  With challenging exercises, examples, and illustrations to help explain the rigorous analytic basis for the Navier–-Stokes equations, mean curvature flow equations, and other important equations describing real phenomena, this book is written for graduate students and researchers, not only in mathematics but also in other disciplines.

Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations will serve as an excellent textbook for a first course in modern analysis or as a useful self-study guide. Key topics in nonlinear partial differential equations as well as several fundamental tools and methods are presented.  The only prerequisite required is a basic course in calculus.
