Few books on Ordinary Differential Equations (ODEs) have the elegant geometric insight of this one, which puts emphasis on the qualitative and geometric properties of ODEs and their solutions, rather than on routine presentation of algorithms. From the reviews: "Professor Arnold has expanded his classic book to include new material on exponential growth, predator-prey, the pendulum, impulse response, symmetry groups and group actions, perturbation and bifurcation." --SIAM REVIEW

There are dozens of books on ODEs, but none with the elegantgeometric insight of Arnol'd's book. Arnol'd puts a clear emphasis on the qualitative andgeometric properties of ODEs and their solutions, ratherthan on theroutine presentation of algorithms for solvingspecial classes of equations.Of course, the reader learnshow to solve equations, but with much more understandingof the systems, the solutions and the techniques. Vector fields and one-parameter groups of transformationscome right from the startand Arnol'd uses this "language"throughout the book. This fundamental difference from thestandard presentation allows him to explain some of the realmathematics of ODEs in a very understandable way and withouthidingthe substance. The text is also rich with examples and connections withmechanics. Where possible, Arnol'd proceeds by physicalreasoning, using it as a convenient shorthand for muchlonger formal mathematical reasoning. This technique helpsthe student get a feel for the subject. Following Arnol'd's guiding geometric and qualitativeprinciples, there are 272 figures in the book, but not asingle complicated formula. Also, the text is peppered withhistoricalremarks, which put the material in context,showing how the ideas have developped since Newton andLeibniz. This book is an excellent text for a course whose goal is amathematical treatment of differential equations and therelated physical systems.

Nach seinem bekannten und viel verwendeten Buch über gewöhnliche Differentialgleichungen widmet sich der berühmte Mathematiker Vladimir Arnold nun den partiellen Differentialgleichungen in einem neuen Lehrbuch. In seiner unnachahmlich eleganten Art führt er über einen geometrischen, anschaulichen Weg in das Thema ein, und ermöglicht den Lesern so ein vertieftes Verständnis der Natur der partiellen Differentialgleichungen. Für Studierende der Mathematik und Physik ist dieses Buch ein Muss. Wie alle Bücher Vladimir Arnolds ist dieses Buch voller geometrischer Erkenntnisse. Arnold illustriert jeden Grundsatz mit einer Abbildung. Das Buch behandelt die elementarsten Teile des Fachgebiets and beschränkt sich hauptsächlich auf das Cauchy-Problem und das Neumann-Problems für die klassischen Lineargleichungen der mathematischen Physik, insbesondere auf die Laplace-Gleichung und die Wellengleichung, wobei die Wärmeleitungsgleichung und die Korteweg-de-Vries-Gleichung aber ebenfalls diskutiert werden. Die physikalische Intuition wird besonders hervorgehoben. Eine große Anzahl von Problemen ist übers ganze Buch verteilt, und ein ganzer Satz von Aufgaben findet sich am Ende. Was dieses Buch so einzigartig macht, ist das besondere Talent Arnolds, ein Thema aus einer neuen, frischen Perspektive zu beleuchten. Er lüftet gerne den Schleier der Verallgemeinerung, der so viele mathematische Texte umgibt, und enthüllt die im wesentlichen einfachen, intuitiven Ideen, die dem Thema zugrunde liegen. Das kann er besser als jeder andere mathematische Autor.

Dieses richtungsweisende Lehrbuch für die Anwendung der Mathematik in anderen Wissenschaftszweigen gibt eine Einführung in die Theorie der gewöhnlichen Differentialgleichungen. Fortran und APL-Programme geben den Studenten die Möglichkeit, verschiedene numerische Näherungsverfahren an ihrem PC selbst durchzurechnen. Aus den Besprechungen: "Die Darstellung ist überall mathematisch streng und zudem ungemein anregend. Abgesehen von manchen historischen Bemerkungen ... tragen dazu die vielen mit ausführlichem Hintergrund sehr eingehend entwickelten praktischen Anwendungen bei. ... Besondere Aufmerksamkeit wird der physikalisch und technisch so wichtigen Frage nach Stabilität von Lösungen eines Systems von Differentialgleichungen gewidmet. Das Buch ist wegen seiner geringen Voraussetzungen und vorzüglichen Didaktik schon für alle Studenten des 3. Semesters geeignet; seine eminent praktische Haltung empfiehlt es aber auch für alle Physiker, die mit Differentialgleichungen und ihren Anwendungen umzugehen haben." #Physikalische Blätter#

This textbook is intended for college, undergraduate and graduate students, emphasizing mainly on ordinary differential equations. However, the theory of characteristics for first order partial differential equations and the classification of second order linear partial differential operators are also included. It contains the basic material starting from elementary solution methods for ordinary differential equations to advanced methods for first order partial differential equations. In addition to the theoretical background, solution methods are strongly emphasized. Each section is completed with problems and exercises, and the solutions are also provided. There are special sections devoted to more applied tools such as implicit equations, Laplace transform, Fourier method, etc. As a novelty, a method for finding exponential polynomial solutions is presented which is based on the author's work in spectral synthesis. The presentation is self-contained, provided the reader has general undergraduate knowledge.

This volume consists of invited lecture notes, survey papers and original research papers from the AAGADE school and conference held in Będlewo, Poland in September 2015. The contributions provide an overview of the current level of interaction between algebra, geometry and analysis and demonstrate the manifold aspects of the theory of ordinary and partial differential equations, while also pointing out the highly fruitful interrelations between those aspects. These interactions continue to yield new developments, not only in the theory of differential equations but also in several related areas of mathematics and physics such as differential geometry, representation theory, number theory and mathematical physics. The main goal of the volume is to introduce basic concepts, techniques, detailed and illustrative examples and theorems (in a manner suitable for non-specialists), and to present recent developments in the field, together with open problems for more advanced and experienced readers. It will be of interest to graduate students, early-career researchers and specialists in analysis, geometry, algebra and related areas, as well as anyone interested in learning new methods and techniques.

On Finiteness in Differential Equations and Diophantine Geometry

This book focuses on finiteness conjectures and results in ordinary differential equations (ODEs) and Diophantine geometry. During the past twenty-five years, much progress has been achieved on finiteness conjectures, which are the offspring of the second part of Hilbert's 16th problem. Even in its simplest case, this is one of the very few problems on Hilbert's list which remains unsolved. These results are about existence and estimation of finite bounds for the number of limit cycles occurring in certain families of ODEs. The book describes this progress, the methods used (bifurcation theory, asymptotic expansions, methods of differential algebra, or geometry) and the specific results obtained. The finiteness conjectures on limit cycles are part of a larger picture that also includes finiteness problems in other areas of mathematics, in particular those in Diophantine geometry where remarkable results were proved during the same period of time. There is a chapter devoted to finiteness results in D The volume can be used as an independent study text for advanced undergraduates and graduate students studying ODEs or applications of differential algebra to differential equations and Diophantine geometry. It is also is a good entry point for researchers interested these areas, in particular, in limit cycles of ODEs, and in finiteness problems. Contributors to the volume include Andrey Bolibrukh and Alexandru Buium. Available from the AMS by A. Buium is Arithmetic Differential Equations, as Volume 118 in the Mathematical Surveys and Monographs series.
