About the Authors
  • Ordinary Differential Equations introduces key concepts and techniques in the field and shows how they are used in current mathematical research and modelling. It deals specifically with initial value problems, which play a fundamental role in a wide range of scientific disciplines, including mathematics, physics, computer science, statistics and biology. This practical book is ideal for students and beginning researchers working in any of these fields who need to understand the area of ordinary differential equations in a short time.

    • Exercises and projects show how the theory links to real applications
    • Contains 'road-tested' teaching material
    • Suitable textbook for a first course in the subject
    • Encourages the use of mathematical software as well as the more numerical approach

    Bernd J. Schroers, Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh
    Bernd J. Schroers studied mathematics and physics at the University of Bonn and obtained his PhD from the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (DAMTP) at the University of Cambridge. He worked as a research fellow at the universities of Durham, Amsterdam and Edinburgh before joining the Department of Mathematics at Heriot-Watt University in 2000. His research interests lie in mathematical physics and he has published numerous papers on topological solitons and aspects of quantum gravity. He has taught courses on differential equations both at Heriot-Watt University and the African Institute for Mathematical Sciences (AIMS) in South Africa for many years.
