Description

Book/CD-ROM package that provides a traditional treatment of elementary ordinary differential equations while introducing computer-assisted methods available with Mathematica. Classical solution methods are presented in parallel with those in Mathematica. Models are developed from classical physics, population biology, electrical circuits, and elementary mechanics. Requires knowledge of calculus of one variable. Knowledge of multi-variable calculus and linear algebra is recommended.
