The Third Edition of the Differential Equations with Mathematica integrates new applications from a variety of fields,especially biology, physics, and engineering. The new handbook is also completely compatible with recent versions of Mathematica and is a perfect introduction for Mathematica beginners. The book/CD-ROM package contains built-in commands that lets the user solve problems directly using graphical solutions.
Professional and student mathematicians, engineers, and scientists.

Stephen McDowall of Western Washington University says: " The topics covered are extensive. The order and organization are good, especially in terms of increasing sophistication of the mathematics involved and in the complexity of the Mathematica programming necessary" March 2003 Mark Lusk of The Colorado School of Mines says: " I am considering the adoption of this book for my graduate class in Simulation and Modeling. I make very heavy use of Mathematica and have a weekly computer lab. I am tempted to make this the sole, required text for that course" March 2003
