Review
"A very novel approach to the teaching/learning of all basic aspects of differential equations. ... The book, therefore, provides an introduction to MAPLE as well as standard material on differential equations written in a friendly style." --Aslib Book Guide "The course in differential equations starts with fairly well-explained examples from different fields of application. The theory is presented in a student-friendly, understandable form.... The problems presented at the end of each chapter contain material for using the theory or the tools presented in the frame of MAPLE. ... The textbook is recommended for those who start solving differential equation problems by MAPLE and also for those who need an introduction in (mainly ordinary) differential equations." --Applications of Mathematics
Synopsis
A key subject in mathematics, engineering, biology and physics, this book features an exciting interactive approach to differential equations by integrating the basics of ODEs and the symbolic computation package Maple. Covers all the essential topics of ODE theory in a user friendly presentation of rigorous mathematics balanced with excellent examples from many different fields of applications.
