Chapter 1 INTRODUCTION AND GENERAL OUTLINE Physical problems in engineering science are often described by dif- ferential models either linear or nonlinear. There is also an abundance of transformations of various types that appear in the literature of engineer- ing and mathematics that are generally aimed at obtaining some sort of simplification of a differential model.
