The numerous applications of partial differential equations to problems in physics, mechanics, and engineering keep the subject an extremely active and vital area of research. With the number of researchers working in the field, advances-large and small-come frequently. Therefore, it is essential that mathematicians working in partial differential equations and applied mathematics keep abreast of new developments. Progress in Partial Differential Equations, presents some of the latest research in this important field. Both volumes contain the lectures and papers of top international researchers contributed at the Third European Conference on Elliptic and Parabolic Problems. In addition to the general theory of elliptic and parabolic problems, the topics covered at the conference include: applications free boundary problems fluid mechanics general evolution problems ocalculus of variations homogenization modeling numerical analysis The research notes in these volumes offer a valuable update on the state-of-the-art in this important field of mathematics.
