**Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations: Asymptotic Behavior of Solutions and Self-Similar Solutions by Mi-Ho Giga**English | PDF | 2010 | 307 Pages | ISBN : 0817641734 | 2.9 MB

The main focus of this textbook, in two parts, is on showing how self-similar solutions are useful in studying the behavior of solutions of nonlinear partial differential equations, especially those of parabolic type. The exposition moves systematically from the basic to more sophisticated concepts with recent developments and several open problems. With challenging exercises, examples, and illustrations to help explain the rigorous analytic basis for the Navier–-Stokes equations, mean curvature flow equations, and other important equations describing real phenomena, this book is written for graduate students and researchers, not only in mathematics but also in other disciplines.
