Take advantage of valuable study resources to succeed in your course
This new edition of Boyce & DiPrima’s Elementary Differential Equations, 8/e, and the accompanying supplements have been carefully developed to give you the support you need to succeed in your course. The Eighth Edition gives you a CD-ROM with powerful ODE Architect modeling software and an array of web-based learning tools to support your studies.
The CD-ROM includes:
The web-based learning tools include:
To accommodate the changing learning environment, this edition takes a more visual, quantitative, project, and example-oriented approach for undergraduate students in mathematics, science, or engineering whose interest in differential equations ranges from the totally theoretical to the diehard practical. Other changes include an introduction to mathematical modeling, direction fields, the basic ideas of stability and instability, and Euler's method of numerical approximation. Coverage includes first-, second-, and higher-order linear and nonlinear equations; the Laplace transform; and numerical methods. Includes chapter problems and appended answers. Boyce is professor emeritus, and DiPrima is a professor, respectively, in the department of mathematical sciences at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, New York. Annotation c.
