Functional Differential Equations

  • Wolfgang KollmannEmail author


Equations determining a functional and involving variational derivatives are called functional differential equations (abbreviated by fde, list in Chap. 1). Definitions and elementary properties of such equations are discussed to prepare the subsequent development on fdes. Two types of such equations are considered: elliptic and parabolic fdes.
