Number of pages: 64
The standard proof of the Grobman--Hartman linearization theorem for a flow at a hyperbolic rest point proceeds by first establishing the analogous result for hyperbolic fixed points of local diffeomorphisms. In this exposition we present a simple direct proof that avoids the discrete case altogether.

This text has been written in clear and accurate language that students can read and comprehend. The author has minimized the number of explicitly state theorems and definitions, in favor of dealing with concepts in a more conversational manner.

Part I introduces the standard techniques of elementary integration and, in some cases, takes the ideas a little further. In Part II, ordinary differential equation are explored, and the solution methods for some standard types are explained.

This is a revision of a text that was on the market for a while. It focuses on systems of differential equations. Some popular topics, which were present in the original text, have been left out to concentrate on the initial value problem.
