PNIE Differential Equations & Linear Algebra 3rd Edition
For combined differential equations and linear algebra courses teaching students who have successfully completed three semesters of calculus. This complete introduction to both differential equations and linear algebra presents a carefully balanced and sound integration of the two topics. It promotes in-depth understanding rather than rote memorization, enabling students to fully comprehend abstract concepts and leave the course with a solid foundation in linear algebra. Flexible in format, it explains concepts clearly and logically with an abundance of examples and illustrations, without sacrificing level or rigor. A vast array of problems supports the material, with varying levels from which students/instructors can choose.

David Poole’s innovative LINEAR ALGEBRA: A MODERN INTRODUCTION, 4e emphasizes a vectors approach and better prepares students to make the transition from computational to theoretical mathematics. Balancing theory and applications, the book is written in a conversational style and combines a traditional presentation with a focus on student-centered learning. Theoretical, computational, and applied topics are presented in a flexible yet integrated way. Stressing geometric understanding before computational techniques, vectors and vector geometry are introduced early to help students visualize concepts and develop mathematical maturity for abstract thinking. Additionally, the book includes ample applications drawn from a variety of disciplines, which reinforce the fact that linear algebra is a valuable tool for modeling real-life problems.
- “Technology Bytes”, an extensive online appendix that shows Maple, Mathematica, and MATLAB instructions key for working out examples and exercises from the text in a computer algebra system.
- Explorations provide deeper discovery-based guides on key concepts, designed for individual or group work.
- Ample applied problems from a wide variety of disciplines, including mathematics, physics, engineering, biology, chemistry, computer science, economics, geography, psychology, and sociology.
- Context-sensitive margin notes for extra help and cross-references.
- EWA helps students develop a deeper conceptual understanding of their subject matter and complete required online homework assignments. Students receive access to a Premium eBook along with immediate feedback and tutorial content, which may include Watch It Videos, Animations, Practice It Questions, Master It Tutorials, Read It Text passages, Chat About It Tutor services, and a Personal Study Plan to aid in the mastery of their course materials.
DIFFERENTIAL EQUATIONS WITH BOUNDARY-VALUE PROBLEMS, 8E, INTERNATIONAL METRIC EDITION strikes a balance between the analytical, qualitative, and quantitative approaches to the study of differential equations. Beginning engineering and math students like you benefit from this accessible text’s wealth of pedagogical aids, including an abundance of examples, explanations, “Remarks” boxes, definitions, and group projects. Written in a straightforward, readable, and helpful style, the book provides you with a thorough treatment of boundary-value problems and partial differential equations.

“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.
