This book concerns the problem of evolution of a round oil spot surrounded by water when oil is extracted from a well inside the spot. It turns out that the boundary of the spot remains an algebraic curve of degree four in the course of evolution. This text discusses this topic and other recent work in the theory of fluid flows with a moving boundary.

We shall be concerned, in this monograph, with systems of differential equations, ordinary or partial, which are algebraic in the unknowns and their derivatives. The algebraic side of the theory of such systems seems is developed in this book.

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.

The differential equation must necessarily at first be viewed in connection with a 'primitive', from which it might have been obtained by the direct process, and the solution consists in the discovery of such a primitive, when it exists...

Trench includes a thorough treatment of boundary-value problems and partial differential equations and has organized the book to allow instructors to select the level of technology desired. This has been simplified by using symbols, C and L ...
