Symmetry and Separation of Variables
by Willard Miller
Publisher: Addison-Wesley 1977
Number of pages: 318
Originally published in 1977, this volume is concerned with the relationship between symmetries of a linear second-order partial differential equation of mathematical physics, the coordinate systems in which the equation admits solutions via separation of variables, and the properties of the special functions that arise in this manner.

The reason for my choosing the partial differential equations as the subject for these lectures is my wish to inspire in my audience a love for Mathematics. I give a brief historical account of the application of Mathematics to natural phenomena.

This text aims at highlights of spectral theory for self-adjoint partial differential operators, with an emphasis on problems with discrete spectrum. The course aims to develop your mental map of spectral theory in partial differential equations.
