Featuring real-world applications from engineering and science fields, A Course in Ordinary Differential Equations is the first book on ordinary differential equations (ODEs) to include relevant computer code and instructions of MATLAB®, Mathematica®, and Maple™. The book embeds the computer algebra code throughout, presenting the syntax next to the relevant theory. It fully describes approximations used to obtain numerical solutions. The authors also present explanations on how to use these programs to solve ODEs and to qualitatively understand autonomous ODEs. With numerous appendices to supplement learning, this book is ideal for students and professionals in mathematics, engineering, and the sciences.
