Synopsis: "A rigorous and lively introduction . . . careful and lucid . . ."-- The American Mathematical Monthly. Excellent hardcover edition. This concise and idea-rich introduction to a topic of perennial interest in mathematics is written so clearly and lucidly, it is well within the reach of senior mathematics students. It covers mainly existence theorems for first-order scalar and vector equations, basic properties of linear vector equations, and two-dimensional nonlinear autonomous systems. Throughout, the emphasis is on geometric methods. Witold Hurewicz was a world-class mathematician whose untimely death in 1956 deprived the mathematics community of one of its leading lights. His contributions to dimension theory, homotopy and other topics are outlined by Professor Solomon Lefschetz in a prefatory article "Witold Hurewicz in Memoriam" included in this volume. Also included is a list of books on differential equations for those interested in further reading, and a bibliography of Hurewicz's published works. Unabridged Dover republication of the work originally published by MIT Press, 1958. Prefatory article "Witold Hurewicz in Memoriam" by Solomon Lefschetz. List of References. Index. 26 figures.
From the Back Cover:
Hailed by The American Mathematical Monthly as "a rigorous and lively introduction," this text explores a topic of perennial interest in mathematics. The author, a distinguished mathematician and formulator of the Hurewicz theorem, presents a clear and lucid treatment that emphasizes geometric methods. Topics include first-order scalar and vector equations, basic properties of linear vector equations, and two-dimensional nonlinear autonomous systems.
Suitable for senior mathematics students, the text begins with an examination of differential equations of the first order in one unknown function. Subsequent chapters address systems of differential equations, linear systems of differential equations, singularities of an autonomous system, and solutions of an autonomous system in the large.
