In the past ten years, the teaching of calculus--and consequently that of differential-equations--has seen a split between the traditional approach and a more intuitive one, commonly known as "reform." An Introduction to Differential Equations reconciles these two directions. It keeps what is good and efficient from the classical style while eliminating the non-essential and heavy-going. And it includes the newer, more qualitative methods involving modeling and computers, but without over-emphasizing technology. By combining the most valuable aspects of the two approaches, An Introduction to Differential Equations provides students with a global and realistic view of the methods used today in differential equations.Diacu, Florin is the author of 'Introduction to Differential Equations Order and Chaos' with ISBN 9780716732969 and ISBN 0716732963.
