Second-order Ordinary Differential Equations
by R.S. Johnson
Publisher: Bookboon 2012
Number of pages: 181
This text provides an introduction to all the relevant material normally encountered at university level: series solution, special functions (Bessel, etc.), Sturm-Liouville theory (involving the appearance of eigenvalues and eigenfunctions) and the definition, properties and use of various integral transforms (Fourier, Laplace, etc.). Numerous worked examples are provided throughout.

This book consists of ten weeks of material given as a course on ordinary differential equations for second year mathematics majors. Rather than seeking to find specific solutions, we seek to understand how all solutions are related in phase space.

With the formal exercise in solving the usual types of ordinary differential equations it is the object of this text to combine a thorough drill in the solution of problems in which the student sets up and integrates his own differential equation.

The proof of the Grobman-Hartman linearization theorem for a flow at a hyperbolic rest point proceeds by establishing the analogous result for hyperbolic fixed points of local diffeomorphisms. We present a proof that avoids the discrete case.

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 the initial value problem.
