No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


David Joyner and Marshall Hampton’s lucid textbook explains differential equations using the free and open-source mathematical software Sage.

Since its release in 2005, Sage has acquired a substantial following among mathematicians, but its first user was Joyner, who is credited with helping famed mathematician William Stein turn the program into a usable and popular choice.

Introduction to Differential Equations Using Sage extends Stein's work by creating a classroom tool that allows both differential equations and Sage to be taught concurrently. It’s a creative and forward-thinking approach to math instruction.

Topics include:

• First-Order Differential Equations • Incorporation of Newtonian Mechanics• Second-Order Differential Equations• The Annihilator Method• Using Linear Algebra with Differential Equations• Nonlinear Systems• Partial Differential Equations• Romeo and Juliet
