Applied Functional Analysis and Partial Differential Equations

This book is an introduction to partial differential equations (PDEs) and the relevant functional analysis tools which they require. It is based on a course which has been taught at Michigan State University for a number of years. The purpose of the course, and of the book, is to give students a rapid and solid research-oriented foundation in areas of PDEs, such as semilinear parabolic equations, that include studies of the stability of fluid flows and, more generally, of the dynamics generated by dissipative systems, numerical PDEs, elliptic and hyperbolic PDEs, and quantum mechanics.
