Rigorous DE and PDE books

  1. Feb 26, 2009 #1
    My plan is to work thru Rudin's Real and Complex Analysis, and then functional analysis, and then move on to DEs/PDEs.

    Right now its looking like Arnold for DEs, and Evans for PDEs.

    Any other recommendations?

    Kreyszig - Advanced Engineering Mathematics 9ed , plenty of ODE and PDE stuff in there for you.

    Redrzewki that sounds like the ideal combo. Arnold is very geometric, but it is a beauty. And Evans is considered a very good grad PDE book.

    You cannot go wrong with Arnold and Evans. I don't know any better books.
