An Introduction to Ordinary Differential Equations (Dover Books on Mathematics)

By Earl A. Coddington

"Written in an admirably cleancut and inexpensive style." — Mathematical Reviews.
This concise textual content bargains undergraduates in arithmetic and technology a radical and systematic first path in basic differential equations. Presuming a data of uncomplicated calculus, the publication first stories the mathematical necessities required to grasp the fabrics to be presented.
The subsequent 4 chapters take in linear equations, these of the 1st order and people with consistent coefficients, variable coefficients, and common singular issues. The final chapters tackle the life and forte of strategies to either first order equations and to structures and n-th order equations.
Throughout the e-book, the writer contains the speculation a long way sufficient to incorporate the statements and proofs of the easier life and forte theorems. Dr. Coddington, who has taught at MIT, Princeton, and UCLA, has incorporated many workouts designed to strengthen the student's approach in fixing equations. He has additionally incorporated difficulties (with solutions) chosen to sharpen realizing of the mathematical constitution of the topic, and to introduce numerous proper themes no longer coated within the textual content, e.g. balance, equations with periodic coefficients, and boundary worth problems.
