Description

This text is designed to be used for a typical two-semester course in differential equations. It emphasizes numerical solutions and graphics and uses Mathematica extensively for animations and vizualizations. It covers topics from fundamental concepts through nonlinear systems, Sturm-Liouville eigenvalue problems, and the diffusion and wave equations.
