## Elementary Differential Equations and Boundary Value ProblemsThis revision of the market-leading book maintains its classic strengths: contemporary approach, flexible chapter construction, clear exposition, and outstanding problems. Like its predecessors, this revision is written from the viewpoint of the applied mathematician, focusing both on the theory and the practical applications of Differential Equations as they apply to engineering and the sciences. Sound and Accurate Exposition of Theory--special attention is made to methods of solution, analysis, and approximation. Use of technology, illustrations, and problem sets help readers develop an intuitive understanding of the material. Historical footnotes trace development of the discipline and identify outstanding individual contributions. |

#### Review: Elementary Differential Equations And Boundary Value Problems

User Review - Erik - GoodreadsI've been using this for a general review of Diff Eq. It is a little dense for a first read (I recommend first mastering all of the rote methods with one of the demystified books or schaum's outlines) but has great problems and nice no frills attack on Matrix methods and PDE at the end.

#### Review: Elementary Differential Equations And Boundary Value Problems

User Review - Zohre - GoodreadsLast semester, i didn't attend my Differential Equations classes, and just by self-studying this book, i picked it up completely, and i got a full mark! So i really appreciate this book :) Read full review
