Celebrating the work of renowned mathematician Jerome A. Goldstein, this reference compiles original research on the theory and application of evolution equations to stochastics, physics, engineering, biology, and finance. The text explores a wide range of topics in linear and nonlinear semigroup theory, operator theory, functional analysis, and linear and nonlinear partial differential equations, and studies the latest theoretical developments and uses of evolution equations in a variety of disciplines. Providing nearly 500 references, the book contains discussions by renowned mathematicians such as H. Brezis, G. Da Prato, N.E. Gretskij, I. Lasiecka, Peter Lax, M. M. Rao, and R. Triggiani.
