**Ordinary Differential Equations: A Systems Approach**

by Bruce P. Conrad

2010**ISBN/ASIN**: 0130460265**Number of pages**: 1125

**Description**:

This is a revision of a text that was on the market for a while. It focuses on systems of differential equations. Some popular topics, which were present in the original text, have been left out to concentrate on what I think a one-semester course should be about: the initial value problem.
