In recent years the study of numerical methods for solving ordinary differential equations has seen many new developments. This second edition of the author's pioneering text is fully revised and updated to acknowledge many of these developments. It includes a complete treatment of linear multistep methods whilst maintaining its unique and comprehensive emphasis on Runge-Kutta methods and general linear methods.
Although the specialist topics are taken to an advanced level, the entry point to the volume as a whole is not especially demanding.
n mathematics, an ordinary differential equation (abbreviated ODE) is an equation containing a function of one independent variable and its derivatives. There are many general forms an ODE can take, and these are classified in practice (see below). The derivatives are ordinary because partial derivatives only apply to functions of many independent variables (see Partial differential equation).
Here follows the continuation of a collection of examples from Calculus 4c-1, Systems of differential
systems. The reader is also referred to Calculus 4b and to Complex Functions.
We focus in particular on the linear differential equations of second order of variable coefficients,
although the amount of examples is far from exhausting.
It should no longer be necessary rigourously to use the ADIC-model, described in Calculus 1c and
Calculus 2c, because we now assume that the reader can do this himself....
We have attempted to write a concise modern treatment of differential equations
emphasizing applications and containing all the core parts of a course in differential
equations.Asemester or quarter course in differential equations is taught to most engineering
students (and many science students) at all universities, usually in the second
year. Some universities have an earlier brief introduction to differential equations and
others do not. Some students will have already seen some differential equations in
their science classes.We do not assume any prior exposure to differential equations.

The present volume, compiled in honor of an outstanding historian of science,
physicist and exceptional human being, Sam Schweber, is unique in assembling
a broad spectrum of positions on the history of science by some of its leading
representatives. Readers will find it illuminating to learn how prominent authors
judge the current status and the future perspectives of their field. Students will find
this volume helpful as a guide in a fragmented field that continues to be dominated
by idiosyncratic expertise and still lacks a methodical canon.
The rest of the paper is organized as follows. Section I lays out the household’s
consumption and portfolio choice problemwith a durable consumption good and
derives the Euler equations. Section II describes the consumption data used
in the empirical work. The service f low for durable goods (as defined in the
national accounts) is more cyclical than the service f low for nondurable goods
and services. The high cyclicality of the service f low, rather than durability of
the good, is the key ingredient in explaining the known facts about expected
The discovery of infinite products byWallis and infinite series by Newton marked the
beginning of the modern mathematical era. The use of series allowed Newton to find
the area under a curve defined by any algebraic equation, an achievement completely
beyond the earlier methods ofTorricelli, Fermat, and Pascal. The work of Newton and
his contemporaries, including Leibniz and the Bernoullis, was concentrated in mathematical
analysis and physics.
We prove the strong Macdonald conjecture of Hanlon and Feigin for reductive groups G. In a geometric reformulation, we show that the Dolbeault cohomology H q (X; Ωp ) of the loop Grassmannian X is freely generated by de Rham’s forms on the disk coupled to the indecomposables of H • (BG). Equating the two Euler characteristics gives an identity, independently known to Macdonald [M], which generalises Ramanujan’s 1 ψ1 sum. For simply laced root systems at level 1, we also ﬁnd a ‘strong form’ of Bailey’s 4 ψ4 sum. ...
Given a compact four dimensional manifold, we prove existence of conformal metrics with constant Q-curvature under generic assumptions. The problem amounts to solving a fourth-order nonlinear elliptic equation with variational structure. Since the corresponding Euler functional is in general unbounded from above and from below, we employ topological methods and min-max schemes, jointly with the compactness result of . 1.
Classiﬁcation of Mechanisms
Using graph representation, mechanism structures can be conveniently represented by graphs. The classiﬁcation problem can be transformed into an enumeration of nonisomorphic graphs for a prescribed number of degrees of freedom, number of loops, number of vertices, and number of edges. The degrees of freedom of a mechanism are governed by Equation (4.3). The number of loops, number of links, and number of joints in a mechanism are related by Euler’s equation, Equation (4.5). The loop mobility criterion is given by Equation (4.7).

We study the motion of an incompressible perfect liquid body in vacuum. This can be thought of as a model for the motion of the ocean or a star. The free surface moves with the velocity of the liquid and the pressure vanishes on the free surface. This leads to a free boundary problem for Euler’s equations, where the regularity of the boundary enters to highest order. We prove local existence in Sobolev spaces assuming a “physical condition”, related to the fact that the pressure of a ﬂuid has to be positive. ...
Integrating statistics and dynamics within a single volume, the book will support the study of engineering mechanics throughout an undergraduate course. The theory of two- and three-dimensional dynamics of particles and rigid bodies, leading to Euler's equations, is developed. The vibration of one- and two-degree-of-freedom systems and an introduction to automatic control, now including frequency response methods, are covered.
This text is based on lecture courses given by the author, over about 40 years, at Newcastle University, to final-year applied
mathematics students. It has been written to provide a typical course that introduces the majority of the relevant ideas,
concepts and techniques, rather than a wide-ranging and more general text. Thus the topics, with their detailed discussion
linked to the many carefully worked examples, do not cover as broad a spectrum as might be found in other, more wideranging
texts on fluid mechanics; this is a quite deliberate choice here.
