In this undergraduate/graduate textbook, the authors introduce ODEs and PDEs through 50 class-tested lectures. Mathematical concepts are explained with clarity and rigor, using fully worked-out examples and helpful illustrations. Exercises are provided at the end of each chapter for practice. The treatment of ODEs is developed in conjunction with PDEs and is aimed mainly towards applications. The book covers important applications-oriented topics such as solutions of ODEs in form of power series, special functions, Bessel functions, hypergeometric functions, orthogonal functions and polynomials, Legendre, Chebyshev, Hermite, and Laguerre polynomials, theory of Fourier series.

Undergraduate and graduate students in mathematics, physics and engineering will benefit from this book. The book assumes familiarity with calculus.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"This work by Agarwal (Florida Institute of Technology) and O'Regan ... gives a clear introduction to the fields of study identified in its title. ... The authors provide 50 short lectures on various topics in the theory of ordinary and partial differential equations. This format makes independent reading of the book easier since it condenses the material into sections of manageable length. ... Beginning graduate students would be the ideal audience for such self-study. Summing Up: Recommended. Academic audiences, upper-division undergraduates and above." (S. L. Sullivan, Choice, Vol. 47 (1), September, 2009)

"The book comprises 50 class-tested lectures which both the authors have given to engineering and mathematics major students under the titles Boundary Value Problems and Methods of Mathematical Physics at various institutions all over the globe ... . The prerequisite for this book is calculus, so it can be used for a senior undergraduate course. It should also be suitable for a beginning graduate course ... . The answers and hints to almost all the exercises are provided for the convenience of the reader." (Juri M. Rappoport, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1172, 2009)
