“…can be thoroughly recommended to all who want an up-to-date approach to their subject.” (Zentralblatt MATH
"Future mathematicians, scientists and engineers should find the book to be an excellent introductory text for coursework or self-study as well as worth its shelf space for reference." (MAA Reviews, October 12, 2006)
From the Publisher
This updated edition of its popular predecessor strikes a balance between the mathematical aspects of the subject and its origin in empirics. It offers, at an elementary level, some of the current topics in applied mathematics such as singular perturbation, nonlinear waves, bifurcation, and the numerical solution of partial differential equations. Features additional sections on the WKB Approximation and asymptotic expansion of integrals along with expanded chapters on Green's Functions and integral equations. Includes Maple programs and examples from biology, chemistry, physics, and engineering.
