Differential Equations with Mathematica, Fourth Edition is a supplementing reference which uses the fundamental concepts of the popular platform to solve (analytically, numerically, and/or graphically) differential equations of interest to students, instructors, and scientists. Mathematica’s diversity makes it particularly well suited to performing calculations encountered when solving many ordinary and partial differential equations. In some cases, Mathematica’s built-in functions can immediately solve a differential equation by providing an explicit, implicit, or numerical solution. In other cases, mathematica can be used to perform the calculations encountered when solving a differential equation. Because one goal of elementary differential equations courses is to introduce students to basic methods and algorithms so that they gain proficiency in them, nearly every topic covered this book introduces basic commands, also including typical examples of their application. A study of differential equations relies on concepts from calculus and linear algebra, so this text also includes discussions of relevant commands useful in those areas. In many cases, seeing a solution graphically is most meaningful, so the book relies heavily on Mathematica’s outstanding graphics capabilities. Demonstrates how to take advantage of the advanced features of Mathematica 10 Introduces the fundamental theory of ordinary and partial differential equations using Mathematica to solve typical problems of interest to students, instructors, scientists, and practitioners in many fields Showcases practical applications and case studies drawn from biology, physics, and engineering

These materials - developed and thoroughly class tested over many years by the authors -are for use in courses at the sophomore/junior level. A prerequisite is the calculus of one variable, although calculus of several variables, and linear algebra are recommended. The text covers the standard topics in first and second order equations, power series solutions, first order systems, Laplace transforms, numerical methods and stability of non-linear systems. Liberal use is made of programs in Mathematica, both for symbolic computations and graphical displays. The programs are described in separate sections, as well as in the accompanying Mathematica notebooks. However, the book has been designed so that it can be read with or without Mathematica and no previous knowledge of Mathematica is required. The CD-ROM contains the Mathematica solution of worked examples, a selection of various Mathematica notebooks, Mathematica movies and sample labs for students. Mathematica programs and additional problem/example files will be available online through the TELOS Web site and the authors dedicated web site.

The first book to explicitly use Mathematica so as to allow researchers and students to more easily compute and solve almost any kind of differential equation using Lie's theory. Previously time-consuming and cumbersome calculations are now much more easily and quickly performed using the Mathematica computer algebra software. The material in this book, and on the accompanying CD-ROM, will be of interest to a broad group of scientists, mathematicians and engineers involved in dealing with symmetry analysis of differential equations. Each section of the book starts with a theoretical discussion of the material, then shows the application in connection with Mathematica. The cross-platform CD-ROM contains Mathematica (version 3.0) notebooks which allow users to directly interact with the code presented within the book. In addition, the author's proprietary "MathLie" software is included, so users can readily learn to use this powerful tool in regard to performing algebraic computations.

The emphasis of the book is given in how to construct different types of solutions (exact, approximate analytical, numerical, graphical) of numerous nonlinear PDEs correctly, easily, and quickly. The reader can learn a wide variety of techniques and solve numerous nonlinear PDEs included and many other differential equations, simplifying and transforming the equations and solutions, arbitrary functions and parameters, presented in the book). Numerous comparisons and relationships between various types of solutions, different methods and approaches are provided, the results obtained in Maple and Mathematica, facilitates a deeper understanding of the subject. Among a big number of CAS, we choose the two systems, Maple and Mathematica, that are used worldwide by students, research mathematicians, scientists, and engineers. As in the our previous books, we propose the idea to use in parallel both systems, Maple and Mathematica, since in many research problems frequently it is required to compare independent results obtained by using different computer algebra systems, Maple and/or Mathematica, at all stages of the solution process. One of the main points (related to CAS) is based on the implementation of a whole solution method (e.g. starting from an analytical derivation of exact governing equations, constructing discretizations and analytical formulas of a numerical method, performing numerical procedure, obtaining various visualizations, and comparing the numerical solution obtained with other types of solutions considered in the book, e.g. with asymptotic solution).

Early training in the elementary techniques of partial differential equations is invaluable to students in engineering and the sciences as well as mathematics. However, to be effective, an undergraduate introduction must be carefully designed to be challenging, yet still reasonable in its demands. Judging from the first edition's popularity, instructors and students agree that despite the subject's complexity, it can be made fairly easy to understand. Revised and updated to reflect the latest version of Mathematica, Partial Differential Equations and Boundary Value Problems with Mathematica, Second Edition meets the needs of mathematics, science, and engineering students even better. While retaining systematic coverage of theory and applications, the authors have made extensive changes that improve the text's accessibility, thoroughness, and practicality. New in this edition: Upgraded and expanded Mathematica sections that include more exercises An entire chapter on boundary value problems More on inverse operators, Legendre functions, and Bessel functions Simplified treatment of Green's functions that make it more accessible to undergraduates A section on the numerical computation of Green's functions Mathemcatica codes for solving most of the problems discussed Boundary value problems from continuum mechanics, particularly on boundary layers and fluctuating flows Wave propagation and dispersion With its emphasis firmly on solution methods, this book is ideal for any mathematics curricula.

This text is for courses that are typically called (Introductory) Differential Equations, (Introductory) Partial Differential Equations, Applied Mathematics, and Fourier Series. Differential Equations is a text that follows a traditional approach and is appropriate for a first course in ordinary differential equations (including Laplace transforms) and a second course in Fourier series and boundary value problems. Some schools might prefer to move the Laplace transform material to the second course, which is why we have placed the chapter on Laplace transforms in its location in the text. Ancillaries like Differential Equations with Mathematica and/or Differential Equations with Maple would be recommended and/or required ancillaries. Because many students need a lot of pencil-and-paper practice to master the essential concepts, the exercise sets are particularly comprehensive with a wide range of exercises ranging from straightforward to challenging. Many different majors will require differential equations and applied mathematics, so there should be a lot of interest in an intro-level text like this. The accessible writing style will be good for non-math students, as well as for undergrad classes.
