A Practical Course in Differential Equations and Mathematical Modelling is a unique blend of the traditional methods of ordinary and partial differential equations with Lie group analysis enriched by the author?s own theoretical developments. The book ? which aims to present new mathematical curricula based on symmetry and invariance principles ? is tailored to develop analytic skills and ?working knowledge? in both classical and Lie?s methods for solving linear and nonlinear equations. This approach helps to make courses in differential equations, mathematical modelling, distributions and fundamental solution, etc. easy to follow and interesting for students. The book is based on the author?s extensive teaching experience at Novosibirsk and Moscow universities in Russia, CollŠge de France, Georgia Tech and Stanford University in the United States, universities in South Africa, Cyprus, Turkey, and Blekinge Institute of Technology (BTH) in Sweden. The new curriculum prepares students for solving modern nonlinear problems and will essentially be more appealing to students compared to the traditional way of teaching mathematics.

This revised and updated text, now in its second edition, continues to present the theoretical concepts of methods of solutions of ordinary and partial differential equations. It equips students with the various tools and techniques to model different physical problems using such equations. The book discusses the basic concepts of ordinary and partial differential equations. It contains different methods of solving ordinary differential equations of first order and higher degree. It gives the solution methodology for linear differential equations with constant and variable coefficients and linear differential equations of second order. The text elaborates simultaneous linear differential equations, total differential equations, and partial differential equations along with the series solution of second order linear differential equations. It also covers Bessel’s and Legendre’s equations and functions, and the Laplace transform. Finally, the book revisits partial differential equations to solve the Laplace equation, wave equation and diffusion equation, and discusses the methods to solve partial differential equations using the Fourier transform. A large number of solved examples as well as exercises at the end of chapters help the students comprehend and strengthen the underlying concepts. The book is intended for undergraduate and postgraduate students of Mathematics (B.A./B.Sc., M.A./M.Sc.), and undergraduate students of all branches of engineering (B.E./B.Tech.), as part of their course in Engineering Mathematics. New to the SECOND Edition • Includes new sections and subsections such as applications of differential equations, special substitution (Lagrange and Riccati), solutions of non-linear equations which are exact, method of variation of parameters for linear equations of order higher than two, and method of undetermined coefficients • Incorporates several worked-out examples and exercises with their answers • Contains a new Chapter 19 on ‘Z-Transforms and its Applications’.

This textbook is designed for a one year course covering the fundamentals of partial differential equations, geared towards advanced undergraduates and beginning graduate students in mathematics, science, engineering, and elsewhere. The exposition carefully balances solution techniques, mathematical rigor, and significant applications, all illustrated by numerous examples. Extensive exercise sets appear at the end of almost every subsection, and include straightforward computational problems to develop and reinforce new techniques and results, details on theoretical developments and proofs, challenging projects both computational and conceptual, and supplementary material that motivates the student to delve further into the subject. No previous experience with the subject of partial differential equations or Fourier theory is assumed, the main prerequisites being undergraduate calculus, both one- and multi-variable, ordinary differential equations, and basic linear algebra. While the classical topics of separation of variables, Fourier analysis, boundary value problems, Green's functions, and special functions continue to form the core of an introductory course, the inclusion of nonlinear equations, shock wave dynamics, symmetry and similarity, the Maximum Principle, financial models, dispersion and solutions, Huygens' Principle, quantum mechanical systems, and more make this text well attuned to recent developments and trends in this active field of contemporary research. Numerical approximation schemes are an important component of any introductory course, and the text covers the two most basic approaches: finite differences and finite elements.
