Linear Differential Operators

Cornelius Lanczos

Don't let the title fool you! If you are interested in numerical analysis, applied mathematics, or the solution procedures for differential equations, you will find this book useful. Because of Lanczos' unique style of describing mathematical facts in nonmathematical language, Linear Differential Operators also will be helpful to nonmathematicians interested in applying the methods and techniques described. Originally published in 1961, this Classics edition continues to be appealing because it describes a large number of techniques still useful today. Although the primary focus is on the analytical theory, concrete cases are cited to forge the link between theory and practice. Considerable manipulative skill in the practice of differential equations is to be developed by solving the 350 problems in the text. The problems are intended as stimulating corollaries linking theory with application and providing the reader with the foundation for tackling more difficult problems.

Praise for this book

'This scholarly volume describes Lanczos' life (1893-1974) and presents a clear development of the many fields he opened. ... a collection of seven photographs of Lanczos from 1910 to 1972 ... is followed by a fascinating twenty-eight page annotated story, 'Cornelius Lanczos: A Biographical Essay', by Barbara Gellai. The fortuitous inclusion of this excellent biography makes the Proceedings a more complete and desirable volume!' Mathematics of Computation
