About this item

This undergraduate textbook introduces the nature and significance of differential equations as a tool for studying change in the physical world, progressing from first- and second-order linear equations to Fourier series, boundary value problems, Laplace transforms, nonlinear equations, and the calculus of variations. Each chapter culminates with a classic scientific problem such as the brachistochrone problem, the Einstein formula, Newton’s law of gravitation, the wave equation of the vibrating string, and Hamilton’s principle. The third edition adds sections on the bell curve and the van der Pol nonlinear equation. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)

Written by a highly respected educator, this third edition updates the classic text designed for a first course in differential equations. With an emphasis on modeling, this edition presents a new section on Gauss?s bell curve and improved sections on Fourier analysis, numerical methods, and linear algebra. The text includes unique examples and exercises as well as interesting historical notes throughout.
