Notes on time decay and scattering for some hyperbolic problems by Cathleen S Morawetz ( Book )
16 editions published between 1975 and 1985 in English and held by 342 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Solutions of the wave equation or Maxwell's equations in boundary value and free space problems are analyzed. Hyperbolic systems in domains going off to infinity are studied. New results on Maxwell's equations and non-star shaped reflecting bodies are included

The last 75 years giants of mathematics by Cathleen S Morawetz ( Visual )
4 editions published between 1991 and 1996 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The talk focuses on four major leaders in applied mathematics: G.I. Taylor, T.V. Karman, von Neumann and Wiener. Their backgrounds and some new stories are given
Transonic flow and mixed equations by Cathleen S Morawetz ( Visual )
2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
With a short review of mixed equations and a discussion of compressible flow, Morawitz illustrates the phenomenon of shocks in transonic flow and describes computations made in 1970s showing that these shocks could be smoothed by clever design

Hyperbolic partial differential equations by Peter D Lax ( Book )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member 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
