In this book, the authors treat the full Hodge theory for the de Rham complex when calculated in the Sobolev topology rather than in the \(L^2\) topology. The use of the Sobolev topology strikingly alters the problem from the classical setup and gives rise to a new class of elliptic boundary value problems. The study takes place on both the upper half space and on a smoothly bounded domain.


  • a good introduction to elliptic theory, pseudo-differential operators, and boundary value problems
  • theorems completely explained and proved
  • new geometric tools for differential analysis on domains and manifolds


Graduate students, research mathematicians, control theorists, engineers and physicists working in boundary value problems for elliptic systems.

Table of Contents

  • Preliminaries
