Ordinary Differential Equations for Engineers and Scientists

This book is a fairly straightforward introduction to differential equations, with an applied emphasis. The student should be aware that this is a huge subject, with lifetimes of study possible. Our hope is that this collection of explanations, examples and exercises will create a solid foundation for understanding differential equations when they are encountered in subject-specific courses, and for further study of differential equations themselves. In the past an introduction to differential equations has usually consisted of learning specific techniques for solving a variety differential equations. It should be no surprise that those techniques are easily forgotten in short order! We will look at techniques for obtaining solutions - that is an essential part of the subject. However, we...
