A Second Course in Elementary Differential Equations deals with norms, metric spaces, completeness, inner products, and an asymptotic behavior in a natural setting for solving problems in differential equations. The book reviews linear algebra, constant coefficient case, repeated eigenvalues, and the employment of the Putzer algorithm for nondiagonalizable coefficient matrix. The text describes, in geometrical and in an intuitive approach, Liapunov stability, qualitative behavior, the phase plane concepts, polar coordinate techniques, limit cycles, the Poincaré-Bendixson theorem. The book explores, in an analytical procedure, the existence and uniqueness theorems, metric spaces, operators, contraction mapping theorem, and initial value problems. The contraction mapping theorem concerns operators that map a given metric space into itself, in which, where an element of the metric space M, an operator merely associates with it a unique element of M. The text also tackles inner products, orthogonality, bifurcation, as well as linear boundary value problems, (particularly the Sturm-Liouville problem). The book is intended for mathematics or physics students engaged in ordinary differential equations, and for biologists, engineers, economists, or chemists who need to master the prerequisites for a graduate course in mathematics.

Elementary Differential Equations presents the standard material in a first course on di?erential equations, including all standard methods which have been a part of the subject since the time of Newton and the Bernoulli brothers. The emphasis in this book is on theory and methods and di?erential equations as a part of analysis. Di?erential equations is worth studying, rather than merely some recipes to be used in physical science. The text gives substantial emphasis to methods which are generally presented ?rst with theoretical considerations following. Essentially all proofs of the theorems used are included, making the book more useful as a reference. The book mentions the main computer algebra systems, yet the emphasis is placed on MATLAB and numerical methods which include graphing the solutions and obtaining tables of values. Featured applications are easily understood. Complete explanations of the mathematics and emphasis on methods for ?nding solutions are included.

With Wiley’s Enhanced E-Text, you get all the benefits of a downloadable, reflowable eBook with added resources to make your study time more effective, including: • Embedded & searchable equations, figures & tables • Math XML • Index with linked pages numbers for easy reference • Redrawn full color figures to allow for easier identification Elementary Differential Equations and Boundary Value Problems 11e, like its predecessors, is written from the viewpoint of the applied mathematician, whose interest in differential equations may sometimes be quite theoretical, sometimes intensely practical, and often somewhere in between. The authors have sought to combine a sound and accurate (but not abstract) exposition of the elementary theory of differential equations with considerable material on methods of solution, analysis, and approximation that have proved useful in a wide variety of applications. While the general structure of the book remains unchanged, some notable changes have been made to improve the clarity and readability of basic material about differential equations and their applications. In addition to expanded explanations, the 11th edition includes new problems, updated figures and examples to help motivate students. The program is primarily intended for undergraduate students of mathematics, science, or engineering, who typically take a course on differential equations during their first or second year of study. The main prerequisite for engaging with the program is a working knowledge of calculus, gained from a normal twoï¿1⁄2 or threeï¿1⁄2 semester course sequence or its equivalent. Some familiarity with matrices will also be helpful in the chapters on systems of differential equations.

The third edition of this concise, popular textbook on elementary differential equations gives instructors an alternative to the many voluminous texts on the market. It presents a thorough treatment of the standard topics in an accessible, easy-to-read, format. The overarching perspective of the text conveys that differential equations are about applications. This book illuminates the mathematical theory in the text with a wide variety of applications that will appeal to students in physics, engineering, the biosciences, economics and mathematics. Instructors are likely to find that the first four or five chapters are suitable for a first course in the subject. This edition contains a healthy increase over earlier editions in the number of worked examples and exercises, particularly those routine in nature. Two appendices include a review with practice problems, and a MATLAB® supplement that gives basic codes and commands for solving differential equations. MATLAB® is not required; students are encouraged to utilize available software to plot many of their solutions. Solutions to even-numbered problems are available on springer.com.

In summary, the author has provided an elegant introduction to important topics in the theory of ordinary differential equations and integral equations. --Mathematical Reviews This book is intended for a one-semester course in differential and integral equations for advanced undergraduates or beginning graduate students, with a view toward preparing the reader for graduate-level courses on more advanced topics. There is some emphasis on existence, uniqueness, and the qualitative behavior of solutions. Students from applied mathematics, physics, and engineering will find much of value in this book. The first five chapters cover ordinary differential equations. Chapter 5 contains a good treatment of the stability of ODEs. The next four chapters cover integral equations, including applications to second-order differential equations. Chapter 7 is a concise introduction to the important Fredholm theory of linear integral equations. The final chapter is a well-selected collection of fascinating miscellaneous facts about differential and integral equations. The prerequisites are a good course in advanced calculus, some preparation in linear algebra, and a reasonable acquaintance with elementary complex analysis. There are exercises throughout the text, with the more advanced of them providing good challenges to the student.
