Do anyone have a recommendation for a great resource to learn Green's functions from? Preferably a book with a generous amount of examples. I'm thinking something like a solid introduction to applied partial differential equations or the like. Ideally, there would be a lot of illustrations as well.
I know people speak warmly about "Partial Differential Equations for Scientists and Engineers" by Stanley J. Farlow (Dover), but it seems a little light on the Green's function side. Would it be better to learn this from an electrodynamics text? My ultimate interest in Green's functions is 1) to get a better understanding of mathematical modeling in general and 2) to better understand its application in QFT (in terms of propagators).
Anyone have some sound advice on where to look? Thanks!

Great Book: Green's Functions, Author G.F.Roach
Hope that helps a little bit :)

Thanks jsea-7. I was aware of the book by Roach, but fear it is a little verbose for my needs. Have you had a chance to study it closely?

This one has many worked examples (and problems) in this area:
It's a fairly cheap dover book, and is generally excellent in my opinion.
