Partial Differential Equations and Boundary Value Problems with Maple V presents all of the material normally covered in a standard course on partial differential equations, while focusing on the natural union between this material and the powerful computational software, Maple V. In this paper, we discuss a Maple package, deaSolve, of the symbolic algorithm for solving an initial value problem for the system of linear differential-algebraic equations with constant coefficients. Using the proposed Maple package, one can compute the desired Green’s function of a given IVP. Sample computations are presented to illustrate the Maple : Srinivasarao Thota. I used it in a third semester math class at Cornell which was 1/3 vector calc (we used Thomas' Calculus, another great book), 1/3 differential equations, and 1/3 Fourier Series, partial differential equations, boundary value problems. We covered Chapters , parts of 4 and 6, and all of chapter book is excellent. The explanations are by: Introductory Differential Equations is a text that follows a traditional approach and is appropriate for a first course in ordinary differential equations (including Laplace transforms) and a second course in Fourier series and boundary value problems. Note that some schools might prefer to move the Laplace transform material to the second 3/5(2).

It does not mention complex methods as a way of solving trigonometric inputs, which makes the equations much easier to solve. This book was required for a class I'm taking at MIT. If I could do it over, I would probably just get the pdf for problems and buy a better differential equations book for a reference. It's not bad, but it's not the best/5(28).

That being said, this is a book for those that have a good understanding of calculus 2 and 3. The problems are not very good, there is a solution manual online however. Up until Fourier series, the book is moderate at best, after that, it is very difficult to read. Especially when it comes to the proofs of these concepts/5(12).
