Differential Equations with Mathematica, 3rd Edition
January 2009, ©2009
Differential Equations with Mathematica 3e is a supplemental text that can enrich and enhance any first course in ordinary differential equations. Designed to accompany Wiley’s ODE texts written by Brannan/Boyce, Boyce/DiPrima, Borrelli/Coleman and Lomen/Lovelock, this supplement helps instructors move towards an earlier use of numerical and geometric methods, place a greater emphasis on systems (including nonlinear ones), and increase discussions of both the benefits and possible pitfalls in numerical solution of ODEs. By providing an introduction to the software that is integrated with the relevant mathematics, Differential Equations with Mathematica can bring students to a level of expertise in the mathematical software system that will allow them to use it in other mathematics, engineering, or science courses.
