Differential Equations and Linear Algebra / Edition 1by Jerry Farlow, West, McDill, Hall
Pub. Date: 06/22/2001
Publisher: Prentice Hall
Employing a unique, reader-friendly approach to teaching differential equations, the authors present a book that encourages users to think qualitatively first and quantitatively second when approaching differential equations. Before finding the analytical solution of a differential equation, the book presents the qualitative aspects of the problemthe directional field, the bounded solutions, their range, the presence of constant solutions and so onto help readers use linear algebra to think about the physical systems being modeled. Topics covered include first-order differential equations, linearity and nonlinearity, linear analysis, linear transformations, linear and nonlinear systems of differential equations, forced systems, discrete dynamical systems and control theory. For individuals seeking a solid, accessible introduction to differential equations and linear algebra.
