An introduction to ordinary differential equations and systems of ordinary differential equations, including new analytical methods to solve nonlinear equations, mathematical modeling, computer programming, computer graphics with Maple, and applications in science and engineering.

New modern methods to solve nonlinear differential equations.

Integrated, balanced presentation of model development, solution methods, computer implementation, and analysis of system’s response.
Designed to increase engineering and science student retention.
Mathematical and computer modeling with Maple. No prior knowledge of MAPLE required.
Emphasis on problem solving over mathematical rigorousness.
Clear and simple presentation of concepts with multitude of examples: 125 solved examples, 70 MAPLE programs, 146 proposed problems, 17 illustrations, 118 computer graphs, answers to problems, detailed bibliography.
Preference of general, systematic, analytical methods over complex numerical methods.
Self contained. Except for calculus, all necessary background is included.
