**Beyond partial differential equations: A course on linear and quasi-linear abstract hyperbolic evolution equations**

by Horst R. Beyer

**Publisher**: arXiv 2011**Number of pages**: 275

**Description**:

This course introduces the use of semigroup methods in the solution of linear and nonlinear (quasi-linear) hyperbolic partial differential equations, with particular application to wave equations and Hermitian hyperbolic systems. Throughout the course applications to problems from current relativistic (hyperbolic) physics are provided, which display the potential of semigroup methods in the solution of current research problems in physics.
