Overview

These world-renowned authors integrate linear algebra and ordinary differential equations in this unique book, interweaving instructions on how to use MATLAB with examples and theory. They use computers in two ways: in linear algebra, computers reduce the drudgery of calculations to help students focus on concepts and methods; in differential equations, computers display phase portraits graphically for students to focus on the qualitative information embodied in solutions, rather than just to learn to develop formulas for solutions.
