By David G. Schaeffer,John W. Cain

This publication develops the idea of normal differential equations (ODEs), ranging from an introductory point (with no past event in ODEs assumed) via to a graduate-level therapy of the qualitative idea, together with bifurcation concept (but now not chaos). whereas proofs are rigorous, the exposition is reader-friendly, aiming for the informality of face-to-face interactions.

A detailed characteristic of this e-book is the mixing of rigorous thought with various functions of medical curiosity. in addition to offering motivation, this synthesis clarifies the speculation and complements medical literacy. different positive factors contain: (i) a wealth of workouts at a number of degrees, besides observation that explains why they topic; (ii) figures with constant colour conventions to spot nullclines, periodic orbits, reliable and risky manifolds; and (iii) a devoted site with software program templates, challenge options, and different assets assisting the text.

Given its many functions, the booklet can be utilized conveniently in technology and engineering classes in addition to in arithmetic classes. Its point is offered to upper-level undergraduates yet nonetheless applicable for graduate scholars. The considerate presentation, which anticipates many confusions of starting scholars, makes the ebook appropriate for a educating setting that emphasizes self-directed, energetic studying (including the so-called inverted classroom).
