Fundamentals of Differential Equations 9th Edition by R. Kent Nagle, ISBN-13: 978-0321977069
[PDF eBook eTextbook]
Publisher: Pearson; 9 edition (January 11, 2017)
For one-semester sophomore- or junior-level courses in Differential Equations.
An introduction to the basic theory and applications of differential equations.
Fundamentals of Differential Equations presents the basic theory of differential equations and offers a variety of modern applications in science and engineering. This flexible text allows instructors to adapt to various course emphases (theory, methodology, applications, and numerical methods) and to use commercially available computer software.
Note that a longer version of this text, entitled Fundamentals of Differential Equations and Boundary Value Problems, 7th Edition , contains enough material for a two-semester course. This longer text consists of the main text plus three additional chapters (Eigenvalue Problems and Sturm—Liouville Equations; Stability of Autonomous Systems; and Existence and Uniqueness Theory).
About the Author
R. Kent Nagle (deceased) taught at the University of South Florida. He was a research mathematician and an accomplished author. His legacy is honored in part by the Nagle Lecture Series which promotes mathematics education and the impact of mathematics on society. He was a member of the American Mathematical Society for 21 years. Throughout his life, he imparted his love for mathematics to everyone, from students to colleagues.
Edward B. Saff received his B.S. in applied mathematics from Georgia Institute of Technology and his Ph.D. in Mathematics from the University of Maryland. After his tenure as Distinguished Research Professor at the University of South Florida, he joined the Vanderbilt University Mathematics Department faculty in 2001 as Professor and Director of the Center for Constructive Approximation. His research areas include approximation theory, numerical analysis, and potential theory. He has published more than 240 mathematical research articles, co-authored 9 books, and co-edited 11 volumes. Other recognitions of his research include his election as a Foreign Member of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences (2013); and as a Fellow of the American Mathematical Society (2013). He is particularly active on the international scene, serving as an advisor and NATO collaborator to a French research team at INRIA Sophia-Antipolis; a co-director of an Australian Research Council Discovery Award; an annual visiting research collaborator at the University of Cyprus in Nicosia; and as an organizer of a sequence of international research conferences that helps foster the careers of mathematicians from developing countries.
Arthur David Snider has 50+ years of experience in modeling physical systems in the areas of heat transfer, electromagnetics, microwave circuits, and orbital mechanics, as well as the mathematical areas of numerical analysis, signal processing, differential equations, and optimization. He holds degrees in mathematics (BS, MIT; PhD, NYU) and physics (MA, Boston U), and is a registered professional engineer. He served 45 years on the faculties of mathematics, physics, and electrical engineering at the University of South Florida. He worked 5 years as a systems analyst at MIT’s Draper Instrumentation Lab, and has consulted for General Electric, Honeywell, Raytheon, Texas, Instruments, Kollsman, E-Systems, Harris, and Intersil. He has authored nine textbooks and roughly 100 journal articles. Hobbies include bluegrass fiddle, acting, and handball.
