Ordinary Differential Equations

Methods and Applications

by W. T. Ang and Y. S. Park


This introductory course in ordinary differential equations, intended for junior undergraduate students in applied mathematics, science and engineering, focuses on methods of solution and applications rather than theoretical analyses. Applications drawn mainly from dynamics, population biology and electric circuit theory are used to show how ordinary differential equations appear in the formulation of problems in science and engineering. The calculus required to comprehend this course is rather elementary, involving differentiation, integration and power series representation of only real functions of one variable. A basic knowledge of complex numbers and their arithmetic is also assumed, so that elementary complex functions which can be used for working out easily the general solutions of...
