Answers to Odd-numbered Exercises.
  • This, classic ODE book, has been so successful because it is the clearest and easiest of all texts in this market.
  • This is the shortest of all the major ODE texts (it covers boundary values problems and PDEs. The brevity makes it usable in quarter schools.
  • Includes abundant exercises and applications.
  • Presents a thorough treatment of power series techniques.
  • Presents a classical treatment of select physical problems to show how Fourier series are utilized in the solution of these problems.
