Linear Partial Differential Equations and Fourier Theory
by Marcus Pivato
Publisher: Cambridge University Press 2005
Number of pages: 619
This is a textbook for an introductory course on linear partial differential equations and initial/boundary value problems. It also provides a mathematically rigorous introduction to basic Fourier analysis, which is the main tool used to solve linear PDEs in Cartesian coordinates. Finally, it introduces basic functional analysis. This is necessary to rigorously characterize the convergence of Fourier series, and also to discuss eigenfunctions for linear differential operators.

Subjects treated: transmutations of singular differential operators of the second order in the real case; new results on the theory of mean periodic functions; proof of the two-radius theorem, which is the converse of Gauss's classical theorem.
by John P. Boyd - Dover Publications
The text focuses on use of spectral methods to solve boundary value, eigenvalue, and time-dependent problems, but also covers Hermite, Laguerre, rational Chebyshev, sinc, and spherical harmonic functions, cardinal functions, etc.
by H. S. Carslaw - Macmillan and co.
An introductory explanation of the theory of Fourier's series. It covers tests for uniform convergence of series, a thorough treatment of term-by-term integration and second theorem of mean value, enlarged sets of examples on infinite series, etc.

These notes are intended for a course in harmonic analysis on Rn for graduate students. The background for this course is a course in real analysis which covers measure theory and the basic facts of life related to Lp spaces.
