Als die Gute Fee H?nschen fragte: "was w?nschst Du dir?", antwortete er: "Keine Differentialgleichungen mehr in der Schule": Hans im Gl?ck! Jetzt k?nnen Sie auch auf eine Gute Fee warten, oder sich dieses Buch kaufen. Sie finden hier Hilfe sollten Sie mit linearen und nichtlinearen gew?hnlichen Differentialgleichungen ihre liebe M?he haben, seien sie nun erster, zweiter oder h?herer Ordnung.

Dieses richtungsweisende Lehrbuch für die Anwendung der Mathematik in anderen Wissenschaftszweigen gibt eine Einführung in die Theorie der gewöhnlichen Differentialgleichungen. Fortran und APL-Programme geben den Studenten die Möglichkeit, verschiedene numerische Näherungsverfahren an ihrem PC selbst durchzurechnen. Aus den Besprechungen: "Die Darstellung ist überall mathematisch streng und zudem ungemein anregend. Abgesehen von manchen historischen Bemerkungen ... tragen dazu die vielen mit ausführlichem Hintergrund sehr eingehend entwickelten praktischen Anwendungen bei. ... Besondere Aufmerksamkeit wird der physikalisch und technisch so wichtigen Frage nach Stabilität von Lösungen eines Systems von Differentialgleichungen gewidmet. Das Buch ist wegen seiner geringen Voraussetzungen und vorzüglichen Didaktik schon für alle Studenten des 3. Semesters geeignet; seine eminent praktische Haltung empfiehlt es aber auch für alle Physiker, die mit Differentialgleichungen und ihren Anwendungen umzugehen haben." #Physikalische Blätter#
Beginning with a general discussion of the linear equation, topics developed include stability theory for autonomous and nonautonomous systems.

This text provides an introduction to partial differential equations and boundary value problems, including Fourier series. The treatment offers students a smooth transition from a course in elementary ordinary differential equations to more advanced topics in a first course in partial differential equations. This widely adopted and successful book also serves as a valuable reference for engineers and other professionals. The approach emphasizes applications, with particular stress on physics and engineering applications. Rich in proofs and examples, the treatment features many exercises in each section. Relevant Mathematica files are available for download from author Nakhlé Asmar's website; however, the book is completely usable without computer access. The Students' Solutions Manual can be downloaded for free from the Dover website, and the Instructor's Solutions Manual is available upon request for professors and potential teachers. The text is suitable for undergraduates in mathematics, physics, engineering, and other fields who have completed a course in ordinary differential equations.

Dieses Lehr- und Handbuch behandelt sowohl die elementaren Konzepte als auch die fortgeschrittenen und zukunftsweisenden linearen und nichtlinearen FE-Methoden in Statik, Dynamik, Festkörper- und Fluidmechanik. Es wird sowohl der physikalische als auch der mathematische Hintergrund der Prozeduren ausführlich und verständlich beschrieben. Das Werk enthält eine Vielzahl von ausgearbeiteten Beispielen, Rechnerübungen und Programmlisten. Als Übersetzung eines erfolgreichen amerikanischen Lehrbuchs hat es sich in zwei Auflagen auch bei den deutschsprachigen Ingenieuren etabliert.
