Number of pages: 321
The selection of topics in this text has formed the core of a one semester course in applied mathematics at the Arctic University of Norway that has been running continuously since the 1970s. The class has, during its existence, drawn participants from both applied mathematics and physics, and also to some extent from pure mathematics, analysis in particular.
