Differential Equations and Boundary Value Problems: Computing and Modeling 5th Global Edition
For introductory courses in Differential Equations. This best-selling text by these well-known authors blends the traditional algebra problem solving skills with the conceptual development and geometric visualization of a modern differential equations course that is essential to science and engineering students. It reflects the new qualitative approach that is altering the learning of elementary differential equations, including the wide availability of scientific computing environments like Maple, Mathematica, and MATLAB. Its focus balances the traditional manual methods with the new computer-based methods that illuminate qualitative phenomena and make accessible a wider range of more realistic applications. Seldom-used topics have been trimmed and new topics added: it starts and ends with discussions of mathematical modeling of real-world phenomena, evident in figures, examples, problems, and applications throughout the text.

“Matrix Algebra and Applied Linear Algebra” is an honest maths text that circumvents the traditional definition-theoreom-proof format that has bored students in the past. Meyer uses a fresh approach to introduce a variety of problems and examples, ranging from the elementary and challenging to simple applications to discovery problems. Modern concepts and notation are used to introduce the various aspects of linear equations, leading readers easily to numerical computations and applications. The theoretical developments are always accompanied with examples, which are worked out in detail. Each section ends with a large number of carefully chosen exercises from which the students can gain further insight. The textbook contains more than 240 examples, 650 exercises, historical notes and comments on numerical performance and some of the possible pitfalls of algorithms. It comes with a solutions manual that includes complete solutions to all of the exercises. As an added bonus, a fully searchable CD-ROM is included that contains the entire textbook, all solutions, more detailed information on topics mentioned in examples, references for additional study, thumbnail sketches and photographs of mathematicians, and a history of linear algebra and computing. It can be used on all platforms.
