The authors integrate linear algebra, ordinary differential equations,and the computer to help students understand these mathematical concepts,interweaving instructions on how to use MATLAB with examples and theory.The book begins by solving linear systems of equations and introducingmatrix algebra. Then it introduces simple ordinary differential equations.The text stresses the use of qualitative methods in solving nonlinearordinary differential equations. A chapter on bifurcation theory is included,as is an introduction to quasiperiodic and chaotic solutions.
