Selected papers
by
Peter D Lax(
)
26 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in English and held by 775 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A renowned mathematician who considers himself both applied and theoretical in his approach, Peter Lax has spent most of his professional career at NYU, making significant contributions to both mathematics and computing. He has written several important published works and has received numerous honours including the National Medal of Science, the Lester R. Ford Award, the Chauvenet Prize, the Semmelweis Medal, the Wiener Prize, and the Wolf Prize. Several students he has mentored have become leaders in their fields. These two volumes span the years from 1952 up until 1999, and cover many varying topics, from functional analysis, partial differential equations, and numerical methods to conservation laws, integrable systems and scattering theory. After each paper, or collection of papers, is a commentary placing the paper in context and where relevant discussing more recent developments. Many of the papers in these volumes have become classics and should be read by any serious student of these topics. In terms of insight, depth, and breadth, Lax has few equals. The reader of this selection will quickly appreciate his brilliance as well as his masterful touch. Having this collection of papers in one place allows one to follow the evolution of his ideas and mathematical interests and to appreciate how many of these papers initiated topics that developed lives of their own

by
Alexandre Joel Chorin(
Book
)
11 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The 60th birthday of Peter Lax was celebrated at Berkeley by a conference entitled Wave Motion: theory, application and computation held at the mathematical Sciences Research Institute, June 912, 1986. Peter Lax has made profound and essential contributions to the topics described by the title of the conference, and has also contributed in important ways to many other mathematical subjects, and as a result this conference volume dedicated to him includes research work on a variety of topics, not all clearly related to its title

Multidimensional hyperbolic problems and computations
by
James Glimm(
Book
)
8 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume is the proceedings of a two week workshop on multidimensional hyperbolic problems held during April 1989. The twentysix papers in this volume emphasize the interdisciplinary nature of contemporary research in this field involving combinations of ideas from the theory of nonlinear partial differential equations, asymptotic methods, numerical computation and experiments. This volume includes several expository papers on asymptotic methods such as nonlinear geometric optics, a number of articles applying numerical algorithms such as higher order Godunov methods and front tracking to physical problems along with comparison to experimental data, and also several interesting papers on the rigorous mathematical theory of shock waves. In addition, there are two papers in the book devoted to open problems with this interdisciplinary emphasis. This book should be very interesting for any researcher pursuing modern developments in the theory and applications of hyperbolic conservation laws
