Description: This book enables readers to first solve those differential equations that have the most frequent and interesting applications. This approach illustrates the standard elementary techniques of solution of differential equations. Precise and clear-cut statements of fundamental existence and uniqueness theorems allow understanding of their role in this subject. A strong numerical approach emphasizes that the effective and reliable use of numerical methods often requires preliminary analysis using standard elementary techniques.The first few sections of most chapters introduce the principle ideas of each topic, with remaining sections devoted to extensions and applications. Topics covered include first-order differential equations, linear equations of higher order, power series methods, Laplace transform methods, linear systems of differential equations, numerical methods, nonlinear systems and phenomena, Fourier series methods, and Eigenvalues and boundary value problems.For those involved in the fields of science, engineering, and mathematics.
