Differential Equations with Applications and Historical Notes, Third Edition


George F. Simmons
October 11, 2016

Fads are as common in mathematics as in any other human activity, and it is always difficult to separate the enduring from the ephemeral in the achievements of one’s own time. An unfortunate effect of the predominance of fads is that if a student doesn’t learn about such worthwhile topics as the...
