Intended for undergraduate students in math, science, and engineering, this text uses MATLAB software to expand the introduction of differential equations from the core topics of solution techniques for boundary value problems with constant coefficients to topics less common for an introductory text such as nonlinear problems and brief discussions of numerical methods. The Schrodinger equation is dicussed as a dispersive equation and the LaPlace and Poisson equations are treated. Finite difference schemes are used to compute solutions. Some mfiles to implement basic finite difference schemes have been included. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, ORThe analytical aspects of solutions are discussed in an integrated fashion with extensive examples and exercises, both analytical and computational. The book is excellent for classroom use and can be used for self-study purposes.
