A brief and accessible introduction to the spectral theory of linear second order elliptic differential operators. By introducing vital topics of abstract functional analysis where necessary, and using clear and simple proofs, the book develops an elegant presentation of the theory while integrating applications of basic real world problems involving the Laplacian. Suitable for use as a self-contained introduction for beginners or as a one-semester student text; contains some 25 examples and 60 exercises, most with detailed hints.
