This volume is a collection of original research papers and expository articles stemming from the scientific program of the Nonlinear PDE Emphasis Year held at Northwestern University (Evanston, IL) in March 1998. The book offers a cross-section of the most significant recent advances and current trends and directions in nonlinear partial differential equations and related topics.

The book's contributions offer two perspectives. There are papers on general analytical treatment of the theory and papers on computational methods and applications originating from significant realistic mathematical models of natural phenomena. Also included are articles that bridge the gap between these two perspectives, seeking synergistic links between theory and modeling and computation. The volume offers direct insight into recent trends in PDEs.


Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in nonlinear partial differential equations and related topics; physicists, engineers, and computational scientists.
