Techniques of Applied Mathematics
by Andrew Fowler
Publisher: University of Oxford 2005
Number of pages: 141
This course develops mathematical techniques which are useful in solving 'real-world' problems involving differential equations, and is a development of ideas which arise in the second year differential equations course. The course embraces the ethos of mathematical modelling, and aims to show in a practical way how equations 'work', and what kinds of solution behaviours can occur.
