Differential Equations: An Introduction with Mathematica, Second Edition

Clay C. Ross, 2004, Springer Science+Business Media Inc., 431 pp., hardcover

Differential Equations: An Introduction with Mathematica, Second Edition

This undergraduate introductory differential equations textbook presents a convenient way for professors to integrate symbolic computing into the study of differential equations and linear algebra. Mathematica provides the necessary computational power and is employed from the very beginning of the text. Each new idea is interactively developed using it.

After first learning about the fundamentals of differential equations and linear algebra, the student is immediately given an opportunity to examine each new concept using Mathematica. All ideas are explored using Mathematica, and though the computer eases the computational burden, the student is encouraged to think about what the computations reveal, how they are consistent with the mathematics, what any conclusions mean, and how they may be applied.

This new edition updates the text to Mathematica 5 and offers a more extensive treatment of linear algebra. It has been thoroughly revised and corrected throughout.
