For introductory courses in Differential Equations.This text provides the conceptual development and geometric visualization of a modern differential equations course while maintaining the solid foundation of algebraic techniques that are still essential to science and engineering students. It reflects the new excitement in differential equations as the availability of technical computing environments likeMaple, Mathematica, and MATLAB reshape the role and applications of the discipline. New technology has motivated a shift in emphasis from traditional, manual methods to both qualitative and computer-based methods that render accessible a wider range of realistic applications. With this in mind, the text augments core skills with conceptual perspectives that students will need for the effective use of differential equations in their subsequent work and study.

Reflecting the shift in emphasis from traditional methods to new computer-based methods, this text -- in classic Edwards and Penney style -- focuses on the mathematical modeling of real-world phenomena as the goal and constant motivation for the study of differential equations. It offers a fresh computational flavor in figures, examples, problems, and projects throughout, and features a broad range of real-world applications. The book also covers topics not found in other similar texts.From the Back Cover:
This book reflects the new excitement in Elementary Differential Equations as the availability of specialized scientific computing environments and software systems continues to reshape the role and applications of the discipline. The new approach found in the Second Edition employs tools like Maple, Mathematica, and MATLAB to shift in emphasis from traditional manual methods to new computer-based methods that open a wider range of realistic applications. Coverage begins and ends with discussions of mathematical modeling of real-world phenomena, with a fresh new computational flavor evident in figures, examples, problems, and projects throughout the text.
