Unlike other texts in the market, this second edition presents differential equations consistent with the way scientists and engineers use modern methods in their work. Technology is used freely, with more emphasis on modeling, graphical representation, qualitative concepts, and geometric intuition than on theoretical issues. It also refers to larger-scale computations that computer algebra systems and DE solvers make possible. More exercises and examples involving working with data and devising the model provide scientists and engineers with the tools needed to model complex real-world situations.

This text is an unbound, binder-ready edition. The modern landscape of technology and industry demands an equally modern approach to differential equations in the classroom. Designed for a first course in differential equations, the second edition of Brannan/Boyce's Differential Equations: An Introduction to Modern Methods and Applications is consistent with the way engineers and scientists use mathematics in their daily work. The focus on fundamental skills, careful application of technology, and practice in modeling complex systems prepares students for the realities of the new millennium, providing the building blocks to be successful problem-solvers in today's workplace. The text emphasizes a systems approach to the subject and integrates the use of modern computing technology in the context of contemporary applications from engineering and science. Section exercises throughout the text provide hands-on experience in modeling, analysis, and computer experimentation. Projects at the end of each chapter provide additional opportunities for students to explore the role played by differential equations in the sciences and engineering. Brannan/Boyce's Differential Equations 2e is available with WileyPLUS, an online teaching and learning environment initially developed for Calculus and Differential Equations courses. WileyPLUS integrates the complete digital textbook, incorporating robust student and instructor resources with online auto-graded homework to create a singular online learning suite so powerful and effective that no course is complete without it.WileyPLUS is sold separately from this text.
