Like its predecessors, this revision is written from the viewpoint of the applied mathematician, focusing both on the theory and the practical applications of Differential Equations as they apply to engineering and the sciences. Sound and Accurate Exposition of Theory-special attention is made to methods of solution, analysis, and approximation. Use of technology, illustrations, and problem sets help readers develop an intuitive understanding of the material. Historical footnotes trace development of the discipline and identify outstanding individual contributions.Hide synopsis

A thorough presentation of the methods for solving ordinary and partial differential equations, designed for undergraduates majoring in mathematics. The book includes detailed and well motivated explanations followed by numerous examples, varied problem sets, and computer generated graphs of solutions and applications. This book varies from Elementary Differential Equations, 4th Edition, in that it includes an extra chapter on Boundary Value Problems. A WIE version of this book is planned for simultaneous publication.A thorough presentation of the methods for solving ordinary and partial differential equations, designed for undergraduates majoring in mathematics.

I bought this book because I found I was hogging a copy from the university library. If you are doing differential equations courses in either a mathematics or possibly a physics degree, then I would recommend this as it has in pretty much of anything I would imagine you would need, at least at first and second year level (I'm second year, so cannot give an opinion about use for third/fourth years) There are sections covering both numerical and analytical solutions. Yes, the text can be a bit dry in places, but it never treats you like an idiot, and I don't think many people read books like this for fun.
Looking for extra problems to work through? Buy this book.
Lecturer is an idiot and/or lecture notes are poor? Buy this book.
