Now enhanced with the innovative DE Tools CD-ROM and the iLrn teaching and learning system, this proven text explains the "how" behind the material and strikes a balance between the analytical, qualitative, and quantitative approaches to the study of differential equations. This accessible text speaks to students through a wealth of pedagogical aids, including an abundance of examples, explanations, "Remarks" boxes, definitions, and group projects. Author Dennis G. Zill wrote this book with the student's understanding kept firmly in mind. He presents the material in a straightforward, readable, and helpful manner, while keeping the level of theory consistent with the notion of a "first course."

About the Author:

Dennis G. Zill is professor of mathematics at Loyola Marymount University. His interests are in applied mathematics, special functions, and integral transforms. Dr. Zill received his Ph.D. in applied mathematics and his M.S. from Iowa State University in 1967 and 1964, respectively. He received his B.A. from St. Mary's in Winona, Minnesota, in 1962. Dr. Zill also is former chair of the Mathematics Department at Loyola Marymount University. He is the author or co-author of 13 mathematics texts.

Review:

"The writing style and level of exposition are exactly what they should be for our course.... The greatest strengths of the book are its organization, its clear explanations of material and its problem sets."

"I believe Zill writes very well. He seems to explain ideas and concepts with great clarity. He introduces new topics slowly and methodically so the student will grasp the idea as he/she reads along." "Zill has a strong textbook: 1. He covers the important material in a depth suitable for a first course. 2. He writes well, is easy to read and understand. 3. He has a good mix of theory and application. As an engineering faculty teaching differential equations, I really appreciate the examples that show how differential equations arise and why they are useful things to study."
