This text brings together PDE theory, general relativity and astrophysics to deliver an overview of theory of partial differential equations for general relativity.

Who is it for? Graduate-level researchers in general relativity, especially those who wish to expand their knowledge of PDE theory.

Presentation: Clearly laid out, in a logical order, with much discussion.

Would you recommend it? A plethora of topics are covered, with detailed links to further reading. Not a book for those wanting to learn the basic manipulative mathematical techniques, but it would serve for graduate students in relativity as an introduction to important topics and issues in PDEs.
