Differential Equations - With CD - 3rd edition

Differential Equations - With CD (ISBN10: 0495012653; ISBN13: 9780495012658)
ISBN13: 978-0495012658
ISBN10: 0495012653

This edition has also been released as:
ISBN13: 978-0495108078
ISBN10: 0495108073

Summary: Incorporating a modeling approach throughout, this exciting text emphasizes concepts and shows that the study of differential equations is a beautiful application of the ideas and techniques of calculus to everyday life. By taking advantage of readily available technology, the authors eliminate most of the specialized techniques for deriving formulas for solutions found in traditional texts and replace them with topics that focus on the formulation of differential eq
uations and the interpretations of their solutions. Students will generally attack a given equation from three different points of view to obtain an understanding of the solutions: qualitative, numeric, and analytic. Since many of the most important differential equations are nonlinear, students learn that numerical and qualitative techniques are more effective than analytic techniques in this setting. Overall, students discover how to identify and work effectively with the mathematics in everyday life, and they learn how to express the fundamental principles that govern many phenomena in the language of differential equations.
