From the book reviews:"This graduate-level book is an introduction to the modern theory of partial differential equations (PDEs) with an emphasis on elliptic PDEs. ... The book is undoubtedly a success in the presentation of diverse methods in PDEs at such an introductory level. The reader has a great opportunity to learn basic techniques underlying current research in elliptic PDEs and be motivated for advanced theory of more general elliptic PDEs and nonlinear PDEs." (Dhruba Adhikari, MAA Reviews, December, 2014)"This revised version gives an introduction to the theory of partial differential equations. ... Every chapter has at the end a very helpful summary and some exercises. This book is very useful for a PhD course." (Vincenzo Vespri, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1259, 2013)"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."- Alain Brillard, Mathematical Reviews"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."- Nick Lord, The Mathematical Gazette
