Zill and Wright (Loyola Marymount U.) offer a textbook on topics in advanced engineering mathematics that emphasizes the theory and applications of ordinary and partial differential equations. They first cover ordinary differential equations (in chapters that are modified from A First Course in Differential Equations with Modeling Applications). They then discuss vectors, matrices, and vector calculus; systems of differential equations; partial differential equations (with some information drawn from Differential Equations with Boundary-Value Problems); and complex analysis. This edition has a new section on Green's functions for linear ordinary differential equations; expanded information on modified Bessel functions and problems in cylindrical coordinates; rewritten sections on dot and cross products and independence of path; new problems; and nine new projects. The CD contains a chapter on engineering statistics and probability.
