Dennis Zill received a PhD in Applied Mathematics from Iowa State University, and is a former professor of Mathematics at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, Loras College in Iowa, and California Polytechnic State University. He is also the former chair of the Mathematics department at Loyola Marymount University, where he currently holds a rank as Professor Emeritus of Mathematics. Zill holds interests in astronomy, modern literature, music, golf, and good wine, while his research interests include Special Functions, Differential Equations, Integral Transformations, and Complex Analysis.

  • Exercises in this edition have been updated to better test and challenge students.
  • NEW TECHNOLOGY. MindTap® Math for A FIRST COURSE IN DIFFERENTIAL EQUATIONS WITH MODELING APPLICATIONS is the all-in-one digital learning solution built with input from today’s students and instructors to enhance the learning experience. Complete with a modern design, student diagnostic and improvement plan, end-of-chapter exercises, automatically-graded algorithmic questions with just-in-time homework help and immediate feedback, MindTap helps instructors reduce distraction and keep students focused and engaged in learning course concepts.
  • A new design helps students quickly identify resources in the text and emphasizes the application of differential equations in the world around them.
  • The development of material in this text progresses intuitively, and explanations are clear and concise. Exercises reinforce and build on chapter content.
  • ENHANCED WEBASSIGN: A FIRST COURSE IN DIFFERENTIAL EQUATIONS WITH MODELING APPLICATIONS, Eleventh Edition, is fully supported by Enhanced WebAssign (EWA), the powerful online homework and course management system that engages students in learning the math. EWA includes new end-of-chapter exercises and pre-built assignments vetted by trusted subject matter experts along with robust course, section, assignment, and question settings and online testing to help instructors foster a deeper understanding of course concepts.
  • While this text is time-tested and widely accepted, it has remained current with the addition of new exercises and the enhanced four-color presentation.
  • Extended homework problems at the end of selected section exercises were submitted and classroom-tested by members of the differential equations instructors.
  • The text guides students through material necessary to progress to the next level of study; its clear presentation and mathematical precision make it an excellent reference tool in future courses.
  • The four-color design adds depth of meaning to all of the graphics, particularly three-dimensional pieces and visuals that involve multiple curves in a graph. The author directed the creation of each piece of art to ensure that it is as mathematically correct as the text.
