About this product
- DescriptionThis book compiles the most widely applicable methods for solving and approximating differential equations, as well as numerous examples showing the methods used. Topics include ordinary differential equations, symplectic integration of differential equations, and the use of wavelets when numerically solving differential equations. For nearly every technique, the book provides: the types of equations to which the method is applicable; the idea behind the method; the procedure for carrying out the method; at least one simple example of the method; any cautions that should be exercised; tes for more advanced users; and references to the literature for more discussion or more examples, including pointers to electronic resources, such as URLs.

He is currently leading a project creating Trust in Autonomous Systems. At Raytheon, he twice won the President's award for best Six Sigma project of the year: on converting planning packages to work packages for the Patriot missile, and for revising Raytheon's timecard system. He has managed the Six Sigma white belt training program. Prior to Raytheon, Dan worked at Sandia Labs, JPL, Exxon, MITRE, IDA, BBN, and The Mathworks (where he developed an early version of their Statistics Toolbox). For ten years, Zwillinger was owner and president of Aztec Corporation. As a small business, Aztec won several Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) contracts. The company also created several software packages for publishing companies. Prior to Aztec, Zwillinger was a college professor at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in the department of mathematics. Dan has written several books on mathematics on the topics of differential equations, integration, statistics, and general mathematics. He is editor-in-chief of the Chemical Rubber Company's (CRC's) Standard Mathematical Tables and Formulae , and is on the editorial board for CRC's Handbook of Chemistry and Physics . Zwillinger holds a bachelor's degree in mathematics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). He earned his doctorate in applied mathematics from the California Institute of Technology (Caltech). Zwillinger is a certified Raytheon Six Sigma Expert and an ASQ certified Six Sigma Black Belt. He also holds a pilot's license.
