An undergraduate text covering first-order and higher-order differential equations, series solutions of linear equations, the Laplace transform, systems of linear first-order differential equations, and numerical solutions of ordinary differential equations. This edition has a clearer delineation to the three major approaches to differential equations: analytical, qualitative, and numerical. It includes new problems that call for the use of a computer algebra system, new conceptual and discussion problems, and new project modules. The author is affiliated with Loyola Marymount University. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
