While mastery of these equations is essential, adhering to any one method of solving them is not. This book stresses alternative examples and analyses by means of which students can understand a number of approaches to finding solutions and understanding their behavior. This book offers not only an applied perspective for the student learning to solve differential equations, but also the challenge to apply these analytical tools in the context of singular perturbations, which arises in many areas of application.
