A Course in Ordinary and Partial Differential Equations discusses ordinary differential equations and partial differential equations. The book reviews the solution of elementary first-order differential equations, existence theorems, singular solutions, and linear equations of arbitrary order. It explains the solutions of linear equations with constant coefficients, operational calculus, and the solutions of linear differential equations. It also explores the techniques of computing for the solution of systems of linear differential equations, which is similar to the solutions of linear equations of arbitrary order. The text proves that if the coefficients of some differential equations possess certain restricted types of singularities, the solution will have Taylor series expansions about the singular points. The investigator can calculate a divergent series whose partial sums numerically approximate the solution for large x if the point in question is infinity, of which the series will be a Taylor series of negative powers of x. The book also explains the Fourier transform, its applications to partial differential equations, as well as the Hilbert space approach to partial differential equations. The book is a stimulating material for mathematicians, for professors, or for students of pure and applied mathematics, physics, or engineering.
