Ordinary Differential Equations: Applications, Models, and Computing

Charles Roberts
October 31, 2017

In the traditional curriculum, students rarely study nonlinear differential equations and nonlinear systems due to the difficulty or impossibility of computing explicit solutions manually. Although the theory associated with nonlinear systems is advanced, generating a numerical solution with a...

Willmore Energy and Willmore Conjecture

Magdalena D. Toda
October 13, 2017

This book is the first monograph dedicated entirely to Willmore energy and Willmore surfaces as contemporary topics in differential geometry. While it focuses on Willmore energy and related conjectures, it also sits at the intersection between integrable systems, harmonic maps, Lie groups, calculus...
