Price: $7.95

Publisher: Dover Publications Inc.: 1966

Seller ID: 66555

ISBN: 048660263X

Condition: Used - Very Good


2nd Corrected Edition (1966) No marks or writing observed in text. Binding tight and square. Light foxing on front edge. Gently read. . . . . . . This was a textbook for a graduate engineering course I took at UCLA in 1954. It was a tough class, but a good one to get engineers up to speed on why partial differential equations were so useful at that time. We had no digital computers for numerical solutions. so classic solutions were often good enough rather than a tedious numerical solution by hand. The only other viable alternative was a very expensive electrical analog computer. This was... View more info

Introduction to Ordinary Differential Equations

By: Albert L. Rabenstein

Price: $8.95

Publisher: Academic Pr: June 1972

Condition: Used - Very Good


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...

Andrzej Mostowski (1 November 1913 – 22 August 1975) was a Polish mathematician. He is perhaps best remembered for the Mostowski collapse lemma. His work was largely on recursion theory and undecidability. From 1946 until his death in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, he worked at the University of Warsaw. Much of his work, during that time, was on first order logic and model theory. View more info

No marks or writing observed in text. Binding tight and square. Gently read. No dust jacket as issued. . . . . . . This book covers classical Euclidian geometry. It has been around a long time. (The 1982 copyright date is just the last time the text was revised for printing. The pictures etc. date back to the 1940's.) The exercises are delightfully challenging. Amazon listed the book's reading level as 'young adult'. I have been teaching advanced HS geometry classes with this book for 6 years, and I can report that most bright students find the language challenging without someone to help t... View more info

I am a Data Scientist by profession with CS and EE background, I have reached a point in my career where I needed to go beyond LSE based optimizations.

CLEAN!! No marks. Might as well be new. Appears unread. . . . . . . Destined to remain the classic treatment of the subject … for many years to come … Although an inspection of the table of contents reveals a coverage so extensive that the work of more than 600 pages might lead one at first to regard this book as an encyclopedia on the subject, a reading of any chapter of the text will impress the reader as a friendly lecture revealing an unusual appreciation of both rigor and the computing technique so important to the statistician.

That's because a classic is a classic. Of course there are certain usages, notations and cutting-edge developments and research which break new ground with intelligence and freshness. And keeping up with all that is obligatory, primarily because most of us are followers compelled to apply, apply, apply.

HARDBACK Edition (Cambridge Univ Press - 1967) No marks or writing observed in text. Binding tight and square. Gently read. . . . . . .The theory of asymptotic expansions is of great importance in many branches of pure and applied mathematics and in theoretical physics. Solutions of ordinary differential equations are frequently obtained in the form of a definite integral or contour integral, and this tract is concerned with the asymptotic representation of a function of a real or complex variable defined in this way.

I own more than a hundred math books, and am always on the lookout for good ones.
