Exercises in this edition have been updated to better test and challenge students.

A new design helps students quickly identify resources in the text and emphasizes the application of Differential Equations in the world around them.

NEW TECHNOLOGY. MindTap® Math for DIFFERENTIAL EQUATIONS WITH BOUNDARYVALUE PROBLEMS is the allinone 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, endofchapter exercises, automaticallygraded algorithmic questions with justintime homework help and immediate feedback, MindTap helps instructors reduce distraction and keep students focused and engaged in learning course concepts.

ENHANCED WEBASSIGN: DIFFERENTIAL EQUATIONS WITH BOUNDARYVALUE PROBLEMS, Ninth 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 endofchapter exercises and prebuilt 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.

Extended homework problems at the end of selected section exercises were submitted and classroomtested by members of the differential equations instructors.

The development of material in this text progresses intuitively, and explanations are clear and concise. Exercises reinforce and build on chapter content.

This 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.

While this text is timetested and widely accepted, it has remained current with the addition of new exercises, and the enhanced fourcolor presentation.

The fourcolor design adds depth of meaning to all of the graphics, particularly threedimensional 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.
