Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This effective and practical new edition continues to focus on differential equations as a powerful tool in constructing mathematical models for the physical world. It emphasizes modeling and visualization of solutions throughout. Each chapter introduces a model and then goes on to look at solutions of the differential equations involved using an integrated analytical, numerical, and qualitative approach. The authors present the material in a way that's clear and understandable to students at all levels. Throughout the text the authors convey their enthusiasm and excitement for the study of ODEs.

Synopsis:

With the modeling and graphical visualization as the central approach, this book introduces differential systems and numerical methods early on and encourages the use of numerical solvers from the very start. It covers modern topics such as sensitivity, long-term behavior, bifurcation, and chaos together with the basic solution formula techniques and theory.
