A DIFFERENT WAY TO LEARN DIFFERENTIAL EQUATIONS

Now anyone with an interest in stepping up to higher math can do sowithout formal training, unlimited time, or a genius IQ. In Differential Equations Demystified, award-winning math professor Steven Krantz provides an effective, anxiety-free method to get past common obstacles on the road to success in higher math and science.

With Differential Equations Demystified, you master the subject one step at a timeat your own speed. This self-teaching guide offers unique "Math Notes" and "You Try It" exercises, problems at the end of each chapter to pinpoint weaknesses, and a 100-question final exam to reinforce the great information in the entire book.

If you want to master differential equations fearlessly, here's a fast and effective self-teaching course to help you do just that. Get ready to --

  • Solve both ordinary and partial differential equations
  • Work detailed examples and stimulating do-it-yourself exercises
  • Discover multiple ways to solve equations, moving seamlessly into higher dimension math concepts
  • Apply the analytical power of differential equations in engineering and science,
  • Score better on science, math, and standardized tests

A fast, effective self-teaching course, Differential Equations Demystified is the perfect shortcut to confidence and skill with crucial mathematical skills.

Book News Annotation:

Krantz asserts that if calculus is the heart of modern science, differential equations are the guts. Writing for those who already have a basic grasp of calculus, Krantz provides explanations, models, and examples that lead from differential equations to higher math concepts in a self-paced format. He includes chapters on first-order and second-order equations, power series solutions and spatial functions, Fourier series, Laplace transforms, numerical methods, partial equations and boundary value problems. His models come from engineering, physics and other fields in math. He includes solutions to the exercises and a final exam.
