The Handbook of Ordinary Differential Equations: Exact Solutions, Methods, and Problems, is an exceptional and complete reference for scientists and engineers as it contains over 7,000 ordinary differential equations with solutions. This book contains more equations and methods used in the field than any other book currently available. Included in the handbook are exact, asymptotic, approximate analytical, numerical symbolic and qualitative methods that are used for solving and analyzing linear and nonlinear equations. The authors also present formulas for effective construction of solutions and many different equations arising in various applications like heat transfer, elasticity, hydrodynamics and more. This extensive handbook is the perfect resource for engineers and scientists searching for an exhaustive reservoir of information on ordinary differential equations. The new edition of this popular handbook contains more equations and methods used in the field than any other book currently available. Encompassing more than 7,000 ODEs with solutions, it presents many asymptotic, approximate analytical, symbolic, and quantitative methods used for analyzing and solving linear and nonlinear equations. This edition covers first-, second-, third-, fourth- and higher-order differential equations and systems along with new nonlinear equations, formulas for effectively constructing solutions, and various equations arising in applications, such as heat and mass transfer, hydrodynamics, and other areas. -- Provided by publisher.
