S.L. Sobolev (1908—1989) was a great mathematician of the twentieth century. His selected works included in this volume laid the foundations for intensive development of the modern theory of partial differential equations and equations of mathematical physics, and they were a gold mine for new directions of functional analysis and computational mathematics.
The topics covered in this volume include Sobolev's fundamental works on equations of mathematical physics, computational mathematics, and cubature formulas. Some of the articles are generally unknown to mathematicians because they were published in journals that are difficult to access.
