This volume presents lectures given at the 1995 Annual Seminar of the Canadian Mathematical Society on Partial Differential Equations and Their Applications held at the University of Toronto in June 1995.

The conference consisted of a combination of minicourses, invited presentations, and contributed talks. In this volume readers will find contributions on a variety of topics related to PDE, such as spectral asymptotics, harmonic analysis, differential operators in hyperbolic manifolds, applications to geometry, mathematical physics, hydrodynamics, and the interaction between theory and numerical methods in PDE.

Titles in this series are co-published with the Centre de Recherches Mathématiques.


Graduate students, research mathematicians, physicists, and engineers interested in nonlinear PDE, spectral asymptotics, geometric analysis, and mathematical physics.


"The results presented and the variety of topics are impressive."
