Ordinary differential equations. (English) Zbl 0552.34001
New York - London etc.: Academic Press (Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, Publishers). XIII, 351 p. (1982).
Some important examples of differential equations are given in the first chapter. Next two chapters contain the fundamental theory of linear and nonlinear differential equations. Linear boundary value problems are studied in Chapter 4. Lyapunov stability theory is discussed in Chapter 5. Chapter 6 contains perturbations of linear systems. Chapter 7 deals with the Poincaré-Bendixson theory and two-dimensional van der Pol type equations. The last chapter is devoted to the study of periodic solutions of general order systems. This book is intended as a text for a first graduate course in mathematics and applied sciences. The get-up is attractive.
