Book Description

A First course in Ordinary Differential Equations provides a detailed introduction to the subject focusing on analytical methods to solve ODEs and theoretical aspects of analyzing them when it is difficult/not possible to find their solutions explicitly. This two-fold treatment of the subject is quite handy not only for undergraduate students in mathematics but also for physicists, engineers who are interested in understanding how various methods to solve ODEs work. More than 300 end-of-chapter problems with varying difficulty are provided so that the reader can self examine their understanding of the topics covered in the text.

Most of the definitions and results used from subjects like real analysis, linear algebra are stated clearly in the book. This enables the book to be accessible to physics and engineering students also. Moreover, sufficient number of worked out examples are presented to illustrate every new technique introduced in this book. Moreover, the author elucidates the importance of various hypotheses in the results by providing counter examples.

Features

  • Offers comprehensive coverage of all essential topics required for an introductory course in ODE.
  • Emphasizes on both computation of solutions to ODEs as well as the theoretical concepts like well-posedness, comparison results, stability etc.
  • Systematic presentation of insights of the nature of the solutions to linear/non-linear ODEs.
  • Special attention on the study of asymptotic behavior of solutions to autonomous ODEs (both for scalar case and 2✕2 systems).
  • Sufficient number of examples are provided wherever a notion is introduced.
  • Contains a rich collection of problems.

This book serves as a text book for undergraduate students and a reference book for scientists and engineers. Broad coverage and clear presentation of the material indeed appeals to the readers.
