Differential equations
linear, nonlinear, ordinary, partial
A.C. King, J. Billingham, and S.R. Otto

Published 2003 by Cambridge University Press in Cambridge, New York .
Written in English.

About the Book

The authors focus on constructing solutions analytically, and interpreting their meaning; MATLAB is used extensively to illustrate the material. The many worked examples, based on interesting real world problems, the large selection of exercises, including several lengthier projects, the broad coverage, and clear and concise presentation will appeal to undergraduates.
