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.
