 This colletion is the fourteenth in an ongoing series on differentiable functions of several variables, presenting recent contributions to a line of research begun by Sobolev in 1950. The papers study various spaces of differentiable functions of several real variables in Euclidean space, their imbeddings, equivalent normings, weighted estimates of derivatives, and traces on sets. Several questions of approximation in function spaces on the line, on a hyperboloid, and on Lobachevsky space are studied. Investigations of bilinear approximations are applied to estimates of the singular numbers of integral operators and widths. The authors also examine the asymptotics of the spectrum of elliptic systems, as well as the Dirichlet variational problem for a degenerate elliptic operator. Finally, a block method of solving Laplace's equation for nonanalytic boundary conditions is developed. Readership Workers in function spaces and partial differential equations. Table of Contents  P.
