Few books on Ordinary Differential Equations (ODEs) have the elegant geometric insight of this one, which puts emphasis on the qualitative and geometric properties of ODEs and their solutions, rather than on routine presentation of algorithms. From the reviews: "Professor Arnold has expanded his classic book to include new material on exponential growth, predator-prey, the pendulum, impulse response, symmetry groups and group actions, perturbation and bifurcation." --SIAM REVIEW

Ordinary Differential Equations covers the fundamentals of the theory of ordinary differential equations (ODEs), including an extensive discussion of the integration of differential inequalities, on which this theory relies heavily. In addition to these results, the text illustrates techniques involving simple topological arguments, fixed point theorems, and basic facts of functional analysis. Unlike many texts, which supply only the standard simplified theorems, this book presents the basic theory of ODEs in a general way. This SIAM reissue of the 1982 second edition covers invariant manifolds, perturbations, and dichotomies, making the text relevant to current studies of geometrical theory of differential equations and dynamical systems. In particular, Ordinary Differential Equations includes the proof of the Hartman-Grobman theorem on the equivalence of a nonlinear to a linear flow in the neighborhood of a hyperbolic stationary point, as well as theorems on smooth equivalences, the smoothness of invariant manifolds, and the reduction of problems on ODEs to those on "maps" (Poincaré). Audience: readers should have knowledge of matrix theory and the ability to deal with functions of real variables.

This introductory course in ordinary differential equations, intended for junior undergraduate students in applied mathematics, science and engineering, focuses on methods of solution and applications rather than theoretical analyses. Applications drawn mainly from dynamics, population biology and electric circuit theory are used to show how ordinary differential equations appear in the formulation of problems in science and engineering. The calculus required to comprehend this course is rather elementary, involving differentiation, integration and power series representation of only real functions of one variable. A basic knowledge of complex numbers and their arithmetic is also assumed, so that elementary complex functions which can be used for working out easily the general solutions of certain ordinary differential equations can be introduced. The pre-requisites just mentioned aside, the course is mainly self-contained. To promote the use of this course for self-study, suggested solutions are not only given to all set exercises, but they are also by and large complete with details.

"A book of great value . . . it should have a profound influence upon future research."--Mathematical Reviews. Hardcover edition. The foundations of the study of asymptotic series in the theory of differential equations were laid by Poincaré in the late 19th century, but it was not until the middle of this century that it became apparent how essential asymptotic series are to understanding the solutions of ordinary differential equations. Moreover, they have come to be seen as crucial to such areas of applied mathematics as quantum mechanics, viscous flows, elasticity, electromagnetic theory, electronics, and astrophysics. In this outstanding text, the first book devoted exclusively to the subject, the author concentrates on the mathematical ideas underlying the various asymptotic methods; however, asymptotic methods for differential equations are included only if they lead to full, infinite expansions. Unabridged Dover republication of the edition published by Robert E. Krieger Publishing Company, Huntington, N.Y., 1976, a corrected, slightly enlarged reprint of the original edition published by Interscience Publishers, New York, 1965. 12 illustrations. Preface. 2 bibliographies. Appendix. Index.

Based on a one-year course taught by the author to graduates at the University of Missouri, this book provides a student-friendly account of some of the standard topics encountered in an introductory course of ordinary differential equations. In a second semester, these ideas can be expanded by introducing more advanced concepts and applications. A central theme in the book is the use of Implicit Function Theorem, while the latter sections of the book introduce the basic ideas of perturbation theory as applications of this Theorem. The book also contains material differing from standard treatments, for example, the Fiber Contraction Principle is used to prove the smoothness of functions that are obtained as fixed points of contractions. The ideas introduced in this section can be extended to infinite dimensions.

Based on a translation of the 6th edition of Gewöhnliche Differentialgleichungen by Wolfgang Walter, this edition includes additional treatments of important subjects not found in the German text as well as material that is seldom found in textbooks, such as new proofs for basic theorems. This unique feature of the book calls for a closer look at contents and methods with an emphasis on subjects outside the mainstream. Exercises, which range from routine to demanding, are dispersed throughout the text and some include an outline of the solution. Applications from mechanics to mathematical biology are included and solutions of selected exercises are found at the end of the book. It is suitable for mathematics, physics, and computer science graduate students to be used as collateral reading and as a reference source for mathematicians. Readers should have a sound knowledge of infinitesimal calculus and be familiar with basic notions from linear algebra; functional analysis is developed in the text when needed.

Designed for those people who want to gain a practical knowledge of modern techniques, this book contains all the material necessary for a course on the numerical solution of differential equations. Written by two of the field's leading authorities, it provides a unified presentation of initial value and boundary value problems in ODEs as well as differential-algebraic equations. The approach is aimed at a thorough understanding of the issues and methods for practical computation while avoiding an extensive theorem-proof type of exposition. It also addresses reasons why existing software succeeds or fails. This book is a practical and mathematically well-informed introduction that emphasizes basic methods and theory, issues in the use and development of mathematical software, and examples from scientific engineering applications. Topics requiring an extensive amount of mathematical development, such as symplectic methods for Hamiltonian systems, are introduced, motivated, and included in the exercises, but a complete and rigorous mathematical presentation is referenced rather than included.

A new edition of this classic work, comprehensively revised to present exciting new developments in this important subject The study of numerical methods for solving ordinary differential equations is constantly developing and regenerating, and this third edition of a popular classic volume, written by one of the world’s leading experts in the field, presents an account of the subject which reflects both its historical and well-established place in computational science and its vital role as a cornerstone of modern applied mathematics. In addition to serving as a broad and comprehensive study of numerical methods for initial value problems, this book contains a special emphasis on Runge-Kutta methods by the mathematician who transformed the subject into its modern form dating from his classic 1963 and 1972 papers. A second feature is general linear methods which have now matured and grown from being a framework for a unified theory of a wide range of diverse numerical schemes to a source of new and practical algorithms in their own right. As the founder of general linear method research, John Butcher has been a leading contributor to its development; his special role is reflected in the text. The book is written in the lucid style characteristic of the author, and combines enlightening explanations with rigorous and precise analysis. In addition to these anticipated features, the book breaks new ground by including the latest results on the highly efficient G-symplectic methods which compete strongly with the well-known symplectic Runge-Kutta methods for long-term integration of conservative mechanical systems. Key features: ?? Presents a comprehensive and detailed study of the subject ?? Covers both practical and theoretical aspects ?? Includes widely accessible topics along with sophisticated and advanced details ?? Offers a balance between traditional aspects and modern developments This third edition of Numerical Methods for Ordinary Differential Equations will serve as a key text for senior undergraduate and graduate courses in numerical analysis, and is an essential resource for research workers in applied mathematics, physics and engineering.

Written in a clear, precise and readable manner, this textbook (now revised and corrected) is designed to provide postgraduate mathematics students with a sound and inspiring introduction to the main themes of ordinary differential equations. It is presented from the viewpoint of applied mathematics to treat differential equations both from the theoretical background and practical applications to scientific and engineering problems. Beginning with a comprehensive treatment of linear differential equations with variable coefficients, the text gives a detailed discussion on some well-known special functions which provide solutions of secondorder linear ordinary differential equations having several regular singular points. Many of the standard concepts and methods which are useful in the study of special functions are discussed. The properties of special functions are derived from their differential equations and boundary conditions. Finally, existence and uniqueness of solutions of differential equations are established. Worked-out examples are introduced throughout the text. End-of-chapter exercises further help understand the mathematical and physical structure of the subject.
