Publisher Synopsis

From the book reviews: "The authors include the expected topics (e.g., first-order linear differential equations, first-order nonlinear differential equations, and second-order equations) for a one-semester introductory course. In addition, they present material to move beyond the typical course work, e.g., chapters on stability theory and boundary value problems. ... The textbook is very readable and can be used either in a classroom setting or for independent study. ... Summing Up: Highly recommended. Lower- and upper-division undergraduates and faculty." (S. L. Sullivan, Choice, Vol. 52 (1), September, 2014) "This book is written as a primer for the theory and applications of ordinary differential equations (ODE). It consists of 13 chapters and an appendix. ... This book provides a good introduction ... to ODE's for students in various fields." (Ken-ichi Yoshihara, zbMATH, Vol. 1288, 2014) Read more...
