Partial Differential Equations pdf 

John W. Cain expresses profound gratitude to his advisor, Dr. David G. Schaeffer, James B. Duke Professor of Mathematics at Duke University, The first five chapters are based in part upon Professor Schaeffer’s introductory graduate course on ordinary differential equations The material has been adapted to accommodate upper-level undergraduate students, essentially by omitting technical proofs of the major theorems and including additional examples. Other major influences on this book include the excellent texts of Perko [8], Strauss [10], and Strogatz [11]. In particular, the material presented in the last five chapters (including the ordering of the topics) is based heavily on Strauss’ book. On the other hand, our exposition, examples, and exercises are more “user-friendly”, making our text more accessible to readers with less background in mathematics, Dr. Reynolds dedicates her portion of this textbook to her mother, father and sisters, she thanks them for all their support and love, Finally Dr. Cain dedicates his portion of this textbook to his parents Jeanette and Harry, who he loves more than words can express.
