For courses in Differential Equations and Linear Algebra.

Known for its real-world applications and its blend of algebraic and geometric approaches, this text offers a full treatment of differential equations together with the linear algebra topics that students need. It emphasizes the conceptual development and geometric visualization of reform courses, but retains the solid foundation of symbolic techniques that remain important to science and engineering students. The authors frame the text by discussing mathematical modeling of real-world phenomena, with a fresh new computational and qualitative flavor evident throughout in figures, examples, problems, and applications. Scientific computing environments like Maple, Mathematica, and MATLAB are available in a separate manual (FREE if shrink-wrapped with text).
