From the reviews:
MATHEMATICAL REVIEWS
"..the composition of this book is somewhat classical. Indeed the author covers the main properties of the elliptic, parabolic and hyperbolic equations. But he always adds some interesting extensions or links between these chapters…this textbook is self-contained…Because of the nice global presentation, I recommend this book to students and young researchers who need the now classical properties of these second-order partial differential equations. Teachers will also find in this textbook the basis of an introductory course on second-order partial differential equations."
"The author covers the main properties of the elliptic parabolic and hyperbolic equations. But he always adds some interesting extensions or links between these chapters. … With an appendix on general results concerning Banach or Hilbert spaces, this textbook is self-contained. … Because of the nice global presentation, I recommend this book to students and young researchers who need the now classical properties of these second-order partial differential equations." (Alain Brillard, Mathematical Reviews, 2003f)
"Jost’s book … focuses mainly on elliptic PDEs and gives a comprehensive overview of the modern theory of solving such equations. … There are extremely helpful summaries and a handful of exercises at the end of each of the 11 chapters; an appendix covers background functional analysis. … Throughout, Jost achieves an impeccable blend of motivation, orientation and analysis … . Beautifully written and superbly well-organised, I strongly recommend this book to anyone seeking a stylish, balanced, up-to-date survey of this central area of mathematics."
