The title of this book is intended to be more of a challenge than a promise. No one can promise you that you will learn differential equations in 24 hours. That is up to you. What this book does is it makes it possible to learn basic differential equations in the minimum amount of time needed. It has a concise style of presentation and the right number of exercises and examples-not too many, not too few. All of the solutions to all of the exercises are presented in detail in Appendix 1. This allows reinforcement learning and verification of success. Biographical sketches of important mathematicians are included to provide additional motivation; however, they can be skipped in the interest of further time savings. The material which can be skipped appears in italics. The content taught here is equivalent to the material presented in the junior-level course in differential equations that the author teaches at University of Colorado Denver. It grew out of his earlier book, Shortcut to Ordinary Differential Equations. The present book, expanded slightly and equipped with all of the solutions, covers basically the same topics that were taught in a junior-level course in differential equations that the author took at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis.

Differential Equations with Maple V provides an introduction and discussion of topics typically covered in an undergraduate course in ordinary differential equations as well as some supplementary topics such as Laplace transforms, Fourier series, and partial differential equations. It also illustrates how Maple V is used to enhance the study of differential equations not only by eliminating the computational difficulties, but also by overcoming the visual limitations associated with the solutions of differential equations. The book contains chapters that present differential equations and illustrate how Maple V can be used to solve some typical problems. The text covers topics on differential equations such as first-order ordinary differential equations, higher order differential equations, power series solutions of ordinary differential equations, the Laplace Transform, systems of ordinary differential equations, and Fourier Series and applications to partial differential equations. Applications of these topics are also provided. Engineers, computer scientists, physical scientists, mathematicians, business professionals, and students will find the book useful.

Differential Equations on Fractals opens the door to understanding the recently developed area of analysis on fractals, focusing on the construction of a Laplacian on the Sierpinski gasket and related fractals. Written in a lively and informal style, with lots of intriguing exercises on all levels of difficulty, the book is accessible to advanced undergraduates, graduate students, and mathematicians who seek an understanding of analysis on fractals. Robert Strichartz takes the reader to the frontiers of research, starting with carefully motivated examples and constructions. One of the great accomplishments of geometric analysis in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries was the development of the theory of Laplacians on smooth manifolds. But what happens when the underlying space is rough? Fractals provide models of rough spaces that nevertheless have a strong structure, specifically self-similarity. Exploiting this structure, researchers in probability theory in the 1980s were able to prove the existence of Brownian motion, and therefore of a Laplacian, on certain fractals. An explicit analytic construction was provided in 1989 by Jun Kigami. Differential Equations on Fractals explains Kigami's construction, shows why it is natural and important, and unfolds many of the interesting consequences that have recently been discovered. This book can be used as a self-study guide for students interested in fractal analysis, or as a textbook for a special topics course.
With Wiley’s Enhanced E-Text, you get all the benefits of a downloadable, reflowable eBook with added resources to make your study time more effective, including: • Embedded & searchable equations, figures & tables • Math XML • Index with linked pages numbers for easy reference • Redrawn full color figures to allow for easier identification Elementary Differential Equations and Boundary Value Problems 11e, like its predecessors, is written from the viewpoint of the applied mathematician, whose interest in differential equations may sometimes be quite theoretical, sometimes intensely practical, and often somewhere in between. The authors have sought to combine a sound and accurate (but not abstract) exposition of the elementary theory of differential equations with considerable material on methods of solution, analysis, and approximation that have proved useful in a wide variety of applications. While the general structure of the book remains unchanged, some notable changes have been made to improve the clarity and readability of basic material about differential equations and their applications. In addition to expanded explanations, the 11th edition includes new problems, updated figures and examples to help motivate students. The program is primarily intended for undergraduate students of mathematics, science, or engineering, who typically take a course on differential equations during their first or second year of study. The main prerequisite for engaging with the program is a working knowledge of calculus, gained from a normal twoï¿1⁄2 or threeï¿1⁄2 semester course sequence or its equivalent. Some familiarity with matrices will also be helpful in the chapters on systems of differential equations.
