*VisualDSolve*
#### Stan Wagon and Dan Schwalbe, downloadable *Mathematica*
application.
*VisualDSolve* is a *Mathematica* package and accompanying
e-book showing how
*Mathematica*'s visualization tools can be used to enhance the
viewing of
solutions to differential equations. The book contains 17 chapters; the
first five serve as a manual to the many functions of the package, and the
other 12 are comprehensive examples. The package itself has some new ways
of viewing
differential equations. Two noteworthy examples are (1) the use of curvy
fish
shapes to describe the vector fields determined by a differential equation
and (2) the use of
colored nullcline regions to describe the different types of directions
for an autonomous system of two equations.
