Overview

Differential and Difference Equations through Computer Experiments: With Diskettes Containing PHASER: An Animator/Simulator for Dynamical Systems for IBM Personal Computers / Edition 2

Phaser is a sophisticated program for IBM personal com-
puters, developed atBrown University by the author and some of his students, which enables usersto experiment with differential and difference equations and dynamical systems in an interactive environment using graphics. This book begins with a brief discussion of the geometric inter-
pretation of differential equations and numerical methods,
and proceeds to guide the student through the use of the program. To run Phaser, you need an IBM PC, XT, AT, or PS/2
with an IBM Color GRaphics Board (CGB), Enhanced Graphics
Adapter (VGA). A math coprocessor is supported; however, one is not required for Phaser to run on the above hardware.
