Second-order Ordinary Differential Equations
by R.S. Johnson
Publisher: Bookboon 2012
Number of pages: 181
This text provides an introduction to all the relevant material normally encountered at university level: series solution, special functions (Bessel, etc.), Sturm-Liouville theory (involving the appearance of eigenvalues and eigenfunctions) and the definition, properties and use of various integral transforms (Fourier, Laplace, etc.). Numerous worked examples are provided throughout.
