Editorial Reviews

From review by M. Henle, Oberlin CollegeDifferential equations is an important subject that lies at the heart of the calculus. Here one sees how the calculus applies to real-world problems. Differential Equations DeMystified, (to use the spelling on the cover) is ...a serious, straightforward work. In style and substance this book is like standard differential equations books...The emphasis is consistently...on the computations needed to find...solutions to specific equations...
