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

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

The result is a treatment that can serve as a supplement and corrective to textbooks, as well as collateral reading in all courses that deal with vectors. Major topics include vectors and...

VERY GOOD+ No marks or writing observed in text. Binding tight and square. Gently read. . . . . . . . This introduction to recent developments in algebraic combinatorics illustrates how research in mathematics actually progresses. The author recounts the dramatic search for and discovery of a proof of a counting formula conjectured in the late 1970s: the number of n x n alternating sign matrices, objects that generalize permutation matrices. While it was apparent that the conjecture must be true, the proof was elusive. As a result, researchers became drawn to this problem and made connections ... View more info
