Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Used in undergraduate classrooms across the USA, this is a clearly written, rigorous introduction to differential equations and their applications. Fully understandable to students who have had one year of calculus, this book distinguishes itself from other differential equations texts through its engaging application of the subject matter to interesting scenarios. This fourth edition incorporates earlier introductory material on bifurcation theory and adds a new chapter on Sturm-Liouville boundary value problems. Computer programs in C, Pascal, and Fortran are presented throughout the text to show readers how to apply differential equations towards quantitative problems.

Book News Annotation:

The 4th edition of this text distinguishes itself from other differential equation texts by incorporating recent developments and offering applications to fascinating events such as the Tacoma Narrows Bridge disaster, why the catch of predator fish in Fiume, Italy rose dramatically during World War I, and proof that the painting "Disciples at Emmaus" was a modern forgery. An introduction to bifurcation theory, computer programs in C, Pascal, and Fortran, and many examples and problems (with odd numbered ones answered) are included.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

In its fourth edition, and benefitting from 15 years of classroom use, this classic study of differential equations and their applications is updated. It is sufficiently rigorous and diverse to satisfy the needs of mathematicians, scientists and engineers, including computer programs in C, Pascal, and Fortran along with many original, challenging exercises. 68 illustrations.
