<p><i>Elementary Differential Equations&nbsp;and&nbsp;Boundary Value Problems, 12th&nbsp;Edition</i>&nbsp;is written from the viewpoint of the applied mathematician, whose interest in differential equations may sometimes be quite theoretical, sometimes intensely practical, and often somewhere in between.&nbsp;In this revision,&nbsp;new author Douglas Meade focuses on&nbsp; developing students conceptual understanding with new concept&nbsp;questions and worksheets&nbsp;for&nbsp;each chapter. Meade&nbsp;builds&nbsp;upon&nbsp;Boyce and&nbsp;DiPrima&rsquo;s&nbsp;work to&nbsp;combine a sound and accurate (but not abstract) exposition of the elementary theory of differential equations with considerable material on methods of solution, analysis, and approximation that have proved useful in a wide variety of applications. The main prerequisite for engaging with the program is a working knowledge of calculus, gained from a normal two or three semester course sequence or its equivalent. Some familiarity with matrices will also be helpful in the chapters on systems of differential equations.&nbsp;</p>
