No marks or writing observed in text. Binding tight and square. Light wear on clogth cover. No DJ. Gently read. . . . . . This book, Introduction to Ordinary Differential Equations and Rabenstein's Elementary Differential Equations with Linear Algebra are quite similar. The differences are that the latter spends 3 chapters developing the linear algebra so as to make available characteristic value methods, whereas the former assumes you already know the linear algebra (although it is refreshed quickly in an appendix), while the former covers more topics and covers some topics in greater detail. For example, Elementary spends a section of a chapter on Bessel Functions, while Introduction has a whole chapter on Bessel Functions. Introduction has a chapter on Fourier transforms and a chapter on Laplace transforms. Only the Laplace transform chapter made it to Elementary. Overall I prefer the Introduction to Differential Equations book, but only if you already know the linear algebra. -- William S Simms III
