Scattering theory by Peter D Lax ( Book )
24 editions published between 1967 and 1990 in 3 languages and held by 736 libraries worldwide
This revised edition of a classic book, which established scattering theory as an important and fruitful area of research, reflects the wealth of new results discovered in the intervening years. This new, revised edition should continue to inspire researchers to expand the application of the original ideas proposed by the authors.

Hyperbolic systems of conservation laws and the mathematical theory of shock waves by Peter D Lax ( Book )
11 editions published between 1973 and 1990 in English and held by 396 libraries worldwide
This book deals with the mathematical side of the theory of shock waves. The author presents what is known about the existence and uniqueness of generalized solutions of the initial value problem subject to the entropy conditions. The subtle dissipation introduced by the entropy condition is investigated and the slow decay in signal strength it causes is shown.
Linear algebra by Peter D Lax ( Book )
7 editions published between 1991 and 2002 in English and held by 356 libraries worldwide
This introduction to linear algebra by world renowned mathematician Peter Lax is unique in its emphasis on the analytical aspects of the subject as well as its numerous applications. The book grew out of Dr. Lax's course notes for the linear algebra classes he teaches at New York University. Geared to graduate students as well as advanced undergraduates, it assumes only limited knowledge of linear algebra and avoids subjects already heavily treated in other textbooks. And while it discusses linear equations, matrices, determinants, and vector spaces, it also includes a number of exciting topics that are not covered elsewhere, such as eigenvalues, the Hahn-Banach theorem, geometry, game theory, and numerical analysis. Clear, concise, and superbly organized. Linear Algebra is an excellent text for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses and also serves as a handy professional reference.

Hyperbolic partial differential equations by Peter D Lax ( Book )
4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 245 libraries worldwide
The theory of hyperbolic equations is a large subject, and its applications are many: fluid dynamics and aerodynamics, the theory of elasticity, optics, electromagnetic waves, direct and inverse scattering, and the general theory of relativity. This book is an introduction to most facets of the theory and is an ideal text for a second-year graduate course on the subject. The first part deals with the basic theory: the relation of hyperbolicity to the finite propagation of signals, the concept and role of characteristic surfaces and rays, energy, and energy inequalities. The structure of solutions of equations with constant coefficients is explored with the help of the Fourier and Radon transforms. The existence of solutions of equations with variable coefficients with prescribed initial values is proved using energy inequalities. The propagation of singularities is studied with the help of progressing waves. The second part describes finite difference approximations of hyperbolic equations, presents a streamlined version of the Lax-Phillips scattering theory, and covers basic concepts and results for hyperbolic systems of conservation laws, an active research area today. Four brief appendices sketch topics that are important or amusing, such as Huygens' principle and a theory of mixed initial and boundary value problems. A fifth appendix by Cathleen Morawetz describes a nonstandard energy identity and its uses. -- Back cover.
