Free boundary problems arise in an enormous number of situations in nature and technology. They hold a strategic position in pure and applied sciences and thus have been the focus of considerable research over the last three decades. Free Boundary Problems: Theory and Applications presents the work...

Working with mathematical models today requires in-depth knowledge of recent methods developed for solving nonlinear differential equations. Keeping abreast of these developments is the goal of the regular meetings of nonlinear analysts held in the Czech Republic, the most recent of which formed ...

Ten years after publication of the popular first edition of this volume, the index theorem continues to stand as a central result of modern mathematics-one of the most important foci for the interaction of topology, geometry, and analysis. Retaining its concise presentation but offering streamlined...

This volume provides a comprehensive treatment of strongly irreducible operators acting on a complex separable infinite dimensional Hilbert space, and to expose and reflect the internal structure of operators by analyzing and studying irreducibility of operators. Much of the material presented here...
