New Release for Kindle: Introduction to Differential Equations

Differential equations are an important and fascinating part of mathematics with numerous applications in almost all fields of science. This book is a gentle introduction to the rich world of differential equations filled with no-nonsense explanations, step-by-step calculations and application-focused examples.

Important note: to enjoy the book, you need solid prior knowledge in algebra and calculus. This means in particular being able to solve all kinds of equations, finding and interpreting derivatives, evaluating integrals as well as understanding the notation that goes along with those.
