Ordinary Differential Equations by Morris Tenenbaum is a great reference book,it has an extended amount information that you may not be able to receive in a classroom environment. The book goes over a range of topics involving differential equations, from how differential equations originated to the existence and uniqueness theorem for the linear differential equation of order n.
Throughout the book all essential terms are defined clearly, and readers are able to interact with the author of the...more

The virtue of the text is that it gives a very clear understanding of applications of differential equations, both within the field of mathematics, and to physical systems. In fact, I've read other popular Differential Equations texts like those by Zill and Boyce, and I would say that no other book on the market deals as comprehensively and intelligibly as this one.

However, the book's vice is that it makes so much effort to connect the applications with the equations, that the flow of concepts f...more

Good intermediate level college text for learning ODEs. Chapters are extensive, concepts clearly presented, and practice problems are a good blend of that evil but necessary plug-and-chug grinding, physical modeling, and extended special cases that require ingenuity and dedication. I didn't get through the entire book, instead focusing on the second order ODEs, from the Method of Undetermined Coefficients to Variation of Parameters to Reduction or Order, and then covering some physical models us...more

This is an amazingly complete reference on differential equations.
The authors offer techniques with lucid explanations and shortcuts.
There are ample problems and answers to cut your teeth on.
The categorizations are brilliant and the techniques really get under your skin.
There are also whole sections devoted to real life problems that lead to differential equations, again replete with examples and solutions.
The miraculous part of this book is just the number of problems provided.

As the description says, this is a well-organized text on how to solve various types of ODEs. It is not a text that you read cover-to-cover, it is best used as an excellent reference.
