Product Description: Learn how to solve complex differential equations using MATLAB#65533;

Introduction to Numerical Ordinary and Partial Differential Equations Using MATLAB#65533; teaches readers how to numerically solve both ordinary and partial differential equations with ease. This innovative publication brings together a skillful treatment of MATLAB and programming alongside theory and modeling. By presenting these topics in tandem, the author enables and encourages readers to perform their own computer experiments, leading them to a more profound understanding of differential equations.

The text consists of three parts:

  • Introduction to MATLAB and numerical preliminaries, which introduces readers to the software and itsgraphical capabilities and shows how to use it to write programs
  • Ordinary Differential Equations
  • Partial Differential Equations

All the tools needed to master using MATLAB to solve differential equations are provided and include:

  • "Exercises for the Reader" that range from routine computations to more advanced conceptual and theoretical questions (solutions appendix included)
  • Illustrative examples, provided throughout the text, that demonstrate MATLAB's powerful ability to solve differential equations
  • Explanations that are rigorous, yet written in a very accessible, user-friendly style
  • Access to an FTP site that includes downloadable files of all the programs developed in the text

This textbook can be tailored for courses in numerical differential equations and numerical analysis as well as traditional courses in ordinary and/or partial differential equations. All the material has been classroom-tested over the course of many years, with the result that any self-learner with an understanding of basic single-variable calculus can master this topic. Systematic use is made of MATLAB's superb graphical capabilities to display and analyze results. An extensive chapter on the finite element method covers enough practical aspects (including mesh generation) to enable the reader to numerically solve general elliptic boundary value problems. With its thorough coverage of analytic concepts, geometric concepts, programs and algorithms, and applications, this is an unsurpassed pedagogical tool.

FAQ'S

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”. Click the box to view the tracking number. *Not all books will have a tracking number since they may be sent from one of our partners. Tracking numbers will be updated as they become available.
4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer. When it’s nearing your due date you’ll place your books inside the mailer and take it to the nearest USPS drop box or Post Office. If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.
6. How much money can renting my books save?
It depends on the book. Generally renting textbooks can save you up to 80% compared to a new textbook.
7. Are Campus Book Rentals’ books the same as my bookstore’s?
Yes! We only ship US edition textbooks, which are the same as your campus bookstore.
8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.
