Now anyone with an interest in stepping up to higher math can do so - without formal training, unlimited time, or a genius IQ. In Differential Equations Demystified, award-winning math professor Steven Krantz provides an effective, anxiety-free method to get past common obstacles on the road to success in higher math and science.
With Differential Equations Demystified, you master the subject one step at a time - at your own speed. This self-teaching guide offers unique "Math Notes" and "You Try It" exercises, problems at the end of each chapter to pinpoint weaknesses, and a 100-question final exam to reinforce the information in the entire book.
From review by M. Henle, Oberlin College Differential equations is an important subject that lies at the heart of the calculus. Here one sees how the calculus applies to real-world problems. Differential Equations DeMystified, (to use the spelling on the cover) is ...a serious, straightforward work. In style and substance this book is like standard differential equations books...The emphasis is consistently...on the computations needed to find...solutions to specific equations... Choice 20050201 Krantz asserts that if calculus is the heart of modern science, differential equations are the guts. Writing for those who already have a basic grasp of calculus, Krantz provides explanations, models, and examples that lead from differential equations to higher math concepts in a self-paced format. He includes chapters on first-order and second-order equations, power series solutions and spatial functions, Fourier series, Laplace transforms, numerical methods, partial equations and boundary value problems. His models come from engineering, physics and other fields in math. He includes solutions to the exercises and a final exam. Sci-Tech Book News 20041201
