This volume deals with the Cauchy or initial value problem for linear differential equations. It treats in detail some of the applications of linear space methods to partial differential equations, especially the equations of mathematical physics such as the Maxwell, Schrodinger, and Dirac equations. Background material presented in the first chapter makes the book accessible to mathematicians and physicists who are not specialists in this area as well as to graduate students.

Industry Reviews

From the hardback review: 'very well conceived and organised with a good selection of material and an excellent combination of detail and perspective ... It should serve well as the standard reference'. Bulletin of the London Mathematical Society
