Primarily intended for the undergraduate students of mathematics, physics and engineering, this text gives in-depth coverage of differential equations and the methods for solving them.
The book begins with the definitions, the physical and geometric origins of differential equations, and the methods for solving the first order differential equations. Then it goes on to give the applications of these equations to such areas as biology, medical sciences, electrical engineering and economics. The text also discusses, systematically and logically, higher order differential equations and their applications to telecommunications, civil engineering, cardiology and detection of diabetes, as also the methods of solving simultaneous differential equations and their applications. Besides, the book provides a detailed discussion on Laplace transforms and their applications, partial differential equations and their applications to vibration of stretched string, heat flow, transmission lines, etc., and calculus of variations and its applications.
The book, which is a happy fusion of theory and application, would also be useful to postgraduate students.NEW TO THIS EDITION
