Partial Differential Equations

There is also new material on Neumann boundary value problems, Poincaré inequalities, expansions, as well as a new proof of the Hölder regularity of solutions of the Poisson equation. Jürgen Jost is Co-Director of the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences and Professor of Mathematics...
