Very good book
A bit dense for non-Math Quants...but worth pursuing
The best book for a first grad course on Stochastic Calculus.
A very good book!

elem diff e-q's
Organized very well The book is very straight-forward in its explanations.However, the exposition is very limited.That means the reader will have to work out a lot of the details. As a teacher, the book works for me.I can furnish, in class, all of the details that are lacking - that's what they pay me for. For self study, I would not recommend this book because of the lacking details.I would have to go with the great book by Tenenbaum and Pollard for those that want to self study this subject. All in all, I really like the book's structure - each section has exactly one point to make, and then exercises to test the one topic in that section.Also, every other chapter has a collection of "miscellaneous problems" that I pull from for the tests.The miscellaneous problems are great, because I can tell my students that those are the problems I am going to use on their tests (a subset at least).That gets the students to work all of those problems (great motivation). I would give this book 5 stars if an instructor came with the book.Otherwise, it is a good book that leaves many of the simple and intricate details to the reader.
my favourite ODEs text!
Elementary Differential Equations I did find the most well-written sections to be the application of second-order differential equations (applied to spring oscillations etc.)However, as far as getting a bang for your buck, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Morris Tennenbaum and Harry Polland's Ordinary Differential Equations Dover edition (cheaper, and MUCH MORE effective.Trust me).
I second that! |

Editorial Review Product Description This example-rich reference fosters a smooth transition from elementary ordinary differential equations to more advanced concepts. Asmar's relaxed style and emphasis on applications make the material accessible even to readers with limited exposure to topics beyond calculus. Encourages computer for illustrating results and applications, but is also suitable for use without computer access. Contains more engineering and physics applications, and more mathematical proofs and theory of partial differential equations, than the first edition. Offers a large number of exercises per section. Provides marginal comments and remarks throughout with insightful remarks, keys to following the material, and formulas recalled for the reader's convenience. Offers Mathematica files available for download from the author's website. A useful reference for engineers or anyone who needs to brush up on partial differential equations. Customer Reviews (5)

Partial Differential Equations and Boundary Value Problems
Initial impressions
A clear introduction to PDEs, Fourier series The subjects include a small bit on characteristics forfirst-order equations, a chapter on trigonometric series, PDEs inrectangular, polar, and spherical systems and associated eigenfunctionexpansions, Sturm-Liouville theory, the fourier transform, Laplace/Hankeltransforms for PDEs, grid-type numerical methods, sampling & discreteFourier analysis, and quantum mechanics (the Schrödinger equation). Thisbook is definitely great for applied mathematicians, physicists, orengineers whoreally need a solid introduction to the topic, written bysomeone who knows all the details.Any treatment in "mathematicalphysics" courses on PDEs will fall short of this book's content. Ofparticular importance are the inclusion of special sections for Besselfunctions, Legendre polynomials, associated Legendre functions, sphericalharmonics, etc.All the details of solution and many exercises areincluded. The most interesting parts of the book are towards the end,with the Sampling Theorem and discrete Fourier transform; and the proof ofHeisenberg's uncertainty principle. This book is also useful for moretheoretical mathematicians or mathematical physicists who need anintroduction to PDEs before taking a more difficult course on generaltheory. In short, I think that even though this book is of great utilityto non-mathematicians, it is proper to learn these concepts and techniquesin a proper math setting where care is taken.This text is a solidfoundation for confident application and a springboard towards moreadvanced subjects. ...

Editorial Review Product Description The Sixth Edition of this acclaimed differential equations book remains the same classic volume it's always been, but has been polished and sharpened to serve readers even more effectively. Offers precise and clear-cut statements of fundamental existence and uniqueness theorems to allow understanding of their role in this subject. Features a strong numerical approach that emphasizes that the effective and reliable use of numerical methods often requires preliminary analysis using standard elementary techniques. Inserts new graphics and text where needed for improved accessibility.A useful reference for readers who need to brush up on differential equations. Customer Reviews (5)

Editorial Review Product Description The first five chapters of the book deal with classical theory: first-order equations, local existence theorems, and an extensive discussion of the fundamental differential equations of mathematical physics. The techniques of modern analysis, such as distributions and Hilbert spaces, are used wherever appropriate to illuminate these long-studied topics. The last three chapters introduce the modern theory: Sobolev spaces, elliptic boundary value problems, and pseudodifferential operators. |
