    To conform with modern teaching practice, the text of this book has been carefully revised and a few new sections added. The treatment is essentially practical and designed to provide a working basis for the scientific student. There are four chapters; two devoted to equations of the first order, one to the special types of second order equations most frequently occurring in practice, and one to linear equations having constant coefficients. The theoretical aspect has not been wholly ignored, and, though inadequate for the needs of purely mathematical students, sufficient is discussed to give an intelligent grasp of the principles underlying the solution of differential equations. The text is well illustrated by worked examples drawn mainly from mechanics, chemistry, engineering and physics. Plenty of exercises are also provided for the student to solve. The notation ‘In’ for ‘loge’ will probably be somewhat strange to British readers.

    Differential Equations.
