New perspectives in thermodynamics by J Serrin( Book )

12 editions published in 1986 in English and Undetermined and held by 267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The maximum principle by Patrizia Pucci( Book )

18 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Maximum principles are bedrock results in the theory of second order elliptic equations. This principle, simple enough in essence, lends itself to a quite remarkable number of subtle uses when combined appropriately with other notions. Intended for a wide audience, the book provides a clear and comprehensive explanation of the various maximum principles available in elliptic theory, from their beginning for linear equations to recent work on nonlinear and singular equations."--BOOK JACKET

Nonlinear analysis and continuum mechanics : papers for the 65th birthday of James Serrin( Book )

5 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The chapters in this volume deal with four fields with deep historical roots that remain active areas reasearch: partial differential equations, variational methods, fluid mechanics, and thermodynamics. The collection is intended to serve two purposes: First, to honor James Serrin, in whose work the four fields frequently interacted; and second, to bring together work in fields that are usually pursued independently but that remain remarkably interrelated. Serrin's contributions to mathematical analysis and its applications are fundamental and include such theorems and methods as the Gilbarg- Serrin theorem on isoated singularities, the Serrin symmetry theorem, the Alexandrov-Serrin moving-plane technique, The Peletier-Serrin uniqueness theorem, and the Serrin integal of the calculus of variations. Serrin has also been noted for the elegance of his mathematical work and for the effectiveness of his teaching and collaborations

Analysis and continuum mechanics : a collection of papers dedicated to J. Serrin on his sixtieth birthday by Stuart S Antman( Book )

7 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 39 papers in this collection are devoted mostly to the exact mathematical analysis of problems in continuum mechanics, but also to problems of a purely mathematical nature mainly connected to partial differential equations from continuum physics. All the papers are dedicated to J. Serrin and were originally published in the "Archive of Rational Mechanics and Analysis."
