Summary

Fundamentals of Differential Equations, Sixth Edition is designed for a one-semester sophomore or junior-level course. Fundamentals of Differential Equations and Boundary Value Problems, Fourth Edition, contains enough material for a two-semester course that covers and builds on boundary-value problems. These tried-and-true texts help students understand the methods and concepts they will need to successfully complete engineering courses. The new texts retain the features that have made previous editions successful, while integrating recent advances in teaching and learning. The Fundamentals of Differential Equations and Boundary Value Problems version consists of the main text plus three additional chapters (Eigenvalue Problems and Sturm-Liouville Equations; Stability of Autonomous Systems; and Existence and Uniqueness Theory).
