For differential equations courses.Written for beginning students, this well organized introduction promotes a solid understanding of differential equations with a flexible presentation. With less emphasis on formal calculation than other texts, all the basic methods are covered--linear, separable, and exact equations--as well as higher order cases, linear equations with constant and variable coefficients, Laplace transform methods, and nonlinear systems. The text's systems focus induces an intuitive understanding of the concept of a solution of an initial value problem in order to resolve potential confusion about what is being approximated when a numerical method is used.show more
