This interdisciplinary work creates a bridge between the mathematical and the technical disciplines by providing a strong mathematical tool. The present book is a new, English edition of the volume published in 1999. It contains many improvements, as well as new topics, using enlarged and updated references. Only ordinary differential equations and their solutions in an analytical frame were considered, leaving aside their numerical approach.

From the reviews:
"The purpose of this book is to present a large variety of examples from mechanics which illustrate numerous applications of the elementary theory of ordinary differential equations. It is intended primarily for the use of engineers, physicists and applied mathematicians ... . It may be also useful for students who will be using the ODEs. The book contains an introduction and seven chapters. ... Each chapter is provided with many illustrative and applicable examples and an Index is also added, including applications." (Antonio Canada Villar, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1123 (1), 2008)
"The goal of the authors of this introductory book on ordinary differential equations (ODEs) is to create a bridge between the mathematical and the technical disciplines. This book is a translation of the Romanian edition ... . the authors wrote an interesting book for technical engineers and applied mathematicians who are interested in ODEs and in mechanics."
