Differential Equations: An Introduction to Modern Methods and Applications is a textbook designed for a first course in differential equations commonly taken by undergraduates majoring in engineering or science. It emphasizes a systems approach to the subject and integrates the use of modern computing technology in the context of contemporary applications from engineering and science. Section exercises throughout the text are designed to give students hands-on experience in modeling, analysis, and computer experimentation. Optional projects at the end of each chapter provide additional opportunitites for students to explore the role played by differential equations in scientific and engineering problems of a more serious nature.
Written by one of the most well known names in mathematics, this book provides readers with a more modern approach to differential equations. It is streamlined for easier readability while incorporating the latest topics and technologies. The modeling- and technology-intensive format allows readers who may normally struggle with learning the subject to feel confident. It also incorporates numerous exercises that have been developed and tested over decades.
