9780130112903: Elementary Differential Equations (4th Edition)

For courses in differential equations.This book provides a concrete and readable text for the traditional course in elementary differential equations that science, engineering, and mathematics students take following calculus. This is a strongly algebraic-oriented text with some computer enhancements for numerical methods.Matters of definition, classification, and logical structure deserve (and receive here) careful attention for the first time in the mathematical experience of many of the students. While it is neither feasible nor desirable to include proofs of the fundamental existence and uniqueness theorems along the way in an elementary course, students need to see precise and clear-cut statements of these theorems and understand their role in the subject. Appropriate existence and uniqueness proofs in the Appendix are included and referenced where appropriate in the main body of the text.

From the Publisher:

This popular introduction to elementary differential equations is widely hailed for its exceptional user-friendly exposition, range of real-world applications, numerical and computer material, and treatment of contemporary topics. It is a brief version of elementary differential equations with boundary value problems.

From the Back Cover:

Maintaining a contemporary perspective, this strongly algebraic-oriented text provides a concrete and readable text for the traditional course in elementary differential equations that science, engineering, and mathematics readers take following calculus. Matters of definition, classification, and logical structure deserve (and receive here) careful attention for the first time in the mathematical experience of many of the readers. While it is neither feasible nor desirable to include proofs of the fundamental existence and uniqueness theorems along the way in an elementary course, readers need to see precise and clear-cut statements of these theorems, and understand their role in the subject. Appropriate existence and uniqueness proofs in the Appendix are included, and referred to where appropriate in the main body of the text. Applications are highlighted throughout the text. These include: What explains the commonly observed lag time between indoor and outdoor daily temperature oscillations?; What makes the difference between doomsday and extinction in alligator populations?; How do a unicycle and a two-axle car react differently to road bumps?; Why are flagpoles hollow instead of solid?; Why might an earthquake demolish one building and leave standing the one next door?; How can you predict the time of next perihelion passage of a newly observed comet?; Why and when does non-linearity lead to chaos in biological and mechanical systems?; What explains the difference in the sounds of a guitar, a xylophone, and a drum? Includes almost 300 computer-generated graphics throughout the text. This text, with enough material for 2 terms, provides a concrete and readable text for the traditional course in elementary differential equations that science, engineering, and mathematics readers take following calculus.
