This is a thoroughly updated and expanded 4th edition of the classic text Nonlinear Ordinary Differential Equations by Dominic Jordan and Peter Smith. Including numerous worked examples and diagrams, further exercises have been incorporated into the text and answers are provided at the back of the book. Topics include phase plane analysis, nonlinear damping, small parameter expansions and singular perturbations, stability, Liapunov methods, Poincare sequences, homoclinic bifurcation and Liapunov exponents.
Over 500 end-of-chapter problems are also included and as an additional resource fully-worked solutions to these are provided in the accompanying text Nonlinear Ordinary Differential Equations: Problems and Solutions, (OUP, 2007).
Both texts cover a wide variety of applications whilst keeping mathematical prequisites to a minimum making these an ideal resource for students and lecturers in engineering, mathematics and the sciences.

Review from previous edition "...classic book...The book succeeds as an exceptionally well written test for its intended audience...No doubt one of its strongest features is over 500 problems...throughout the entire book only important physical processes are described... The new edition is greatly enhanced...I strongly recommend that you take a look. The presentation is exquisitely straightforward with numerous physically interesting examples, and it is carefully and well written"
