Prominent experts provide everything students need to know about dynamical systems as students seek to develop sufficient mathematical skills to analyze the types of differential equations that arise in their area of study.

Monday, pm Jacob Bernstein: I found that the descriptions, and particularly the illustrations, provided more detail than Strogatz, and with greater brevity, without assuming an excess of knowledge. Buy the selected items together This item: It’s proven very useful for independent study and is almost entirely self contained.


This book is a great balance of concrete examples and general results. It would have been nice to have separate existence and uniqueness proofs in chapter 17 but the proof provided is sufficient and decent to read.

NOT a easy book to follow by any means, but decent in its own right. Customers who viewed this item also viewed. The first chapter is maybe the most important chapter of any book, and the problem with this one is that it fails to motivate the material, while frustrating the reader because it skips many steps in the calculation.

While not essential to the course, being able to plot solutions with the help of a computer can greatly assist in your understanding. Set up a giveaway. Honors Differential Equations Course Description This course is an honors introduction to differential equations.

That makes sense–this book saved my bacon when I took an innocuously named “Applied Dynamical Systems” class ha! The section introducing chaos focussing on hallmarks of density of periodic orbits, transitivity and sensitivity to initial conditions is very interesting.
