Summary: The computer plays a prominent role throughout the text in generating computer graphics used to display such concepts as direction fields, phase portraits, surfaces and vector fields, convergence of Fourier series, the Gibbs phenomenon, and filtering noise from signals. The author took care to make his presentation of material interesting and the text's format useful and easily read. This edition was reorganized in part to provide a more logical structure and to more ...show more fully develop the connections among topics. All of the problem sets and solutions were extensively class tested and checked for accuracy, level of difficulty and suitability. Among the case studies included are an FFT analysis of tidal data and a problem in radioactive waste disposal.
