Robert Borrelli and Courtney Coleman, emeritus professors of mathematics at Harvey Mudd College, developed this 20-chapter textbook in the ’60s and ’70s for use in several advanced mathematics courses at Harvey Mudd College. Parts of this text formed the basis of several published books in differential equations. Primarily intended for mathematicians, engineers, and scientists, the text covers ordinary and partial differential equations, linear algebra, real analysis, integral equations, Fourier analysis, and Sturm-Liouville problems, all the while focusing on a diverse set of applications including airplane control, planetary motion, chemical reactions, and sampled signals.
This work is intended to give the college upper class (or graduate) student a glimpse into some important areas of applicable mathematics along with some experience in traditional and contemporary applications.
Included in this collection is Models for Applied Analysis. The purpose of this handbook is to help students of Applied Analysis to organize the necessary resources for the successful completion of independent study projects.
