The natural place for an informal acquaintance with such ideas is a leisurely introductory ... Read more

Reviews for Differential Equations with Applications and Historical Notes, Third Edition (Textbooks in Mathematics)
This is an attractive introductory work on differential equations, with extensive information in addition to what can be covered in a two-semester course. The order of the topics examined is slightly unusual in that Laplacians are covered after Fourier transforms and power series. The chapter on power series contains a section on hypergeometric equations, which could well be the first ... Read more
