內容簡介top Differential Equations As Models in Science and Engineering 簡介 This textbook develops a coherent view of differential equations by progressing through a series of typical examples in science and engineering that can be modeled by differential equations. All steps of the modeling process are covered: formulation of a mathematical model; mathematical concepts that lead to constructive solutions; validation of the solutions; and consideration of the consequences. The volume engages students in thinking mathematically and appreciating its relevance in science and engineering. It shows students how to solve the typical differential equations that arise in science and engineering based on just a few guiding principles. The development of mathematical models is placed center-stage in this volume.
