Overview

Packed with examples, this book provides a smooth transition from elementary ordinary differential equations to more advanced concepts. Asmar's relaxed style and emphasis on applications make the material understandable even for readers with limited exposure to topics beyond calculus. Encourages the use of computer resources for illustrating results and applications, but is also suitable for use without computer access. Includes additional specialized topics that can be read as desired, and that can be read independently of each other. Denotes exercises requiring use of a computer with computer icons, asking readers to investigate problems using computer-generated graphics and to generate numerical data that cannot be computed by hand. Offers Mathematica files for download from the author's Web site; can be accessed through the Prentice Hall address ...
