About the Authors
  • Under the auspices of the Istituto Nazionale di Alta Matematica, a conference was held in October 1992 in Cortona, Italy, to study partial differential equations of elliptic type. These equations arise from many real systems and have been studied in depth for many years. Here special emphasis is placed on the geometric aspects of the subject, giving this volume a unique flavour. Many of the world's leading figures in this subject area attended the meeting, and this volume collects the best papers, covering the latest advances and shedding new light on old problems. As an account of the present state of the subject, these papers are unparalleled, and all workers on partial differential equations will find that this book will be of lasting value.
