Boyce's Elementary Differential Equations and Boundary Value Problems is written from the viewpoint of the applied mathematician, with diverse interest in differential equations, ranging from quite theoretical to intensely practical-and usually a combination of both. The intended audience for the text is undergraduate STEM students taking an introductory course in differential equations. The main prerequisite for engaging with the program is a working knowledge of calculus, gained from a normal two or three semester course sequence or its equivalent, while a basic familiarity with matrices is helpful.
This new edition of the book aims to preserve, and to enhance the qualities that have made previous editions so successful. It offers a sound and accurate exposition of the elementary theory of differential equations with considerable material on methods of solution, analysis, and approximation that have proved useful in a wide variety of applications.
