Second-order Ordinary Differential Equations
by R.S. Johnson
Publisher: Bookboon 2012
Number of pages: 181
This text provides an introduction to all the relevant material normally encountered at university level: series solution, special functions (Bessel, etc.), Sturm-Liouville theory (involving the appearance of eigenvalues and eigenfunctions) and the definition, properties and use of various integral transforms (Fourier, Laplace, etc.). Numerous worked examples are provided throughout.

This work has been prepared to meet a want in a course on the subject, arranged for advanced students in Physics. It could be used in connection with lectures on the theory of Differential Equations and the derivation of the methods of solution.

The author's goal was to give the audience an introduction to the algebraic, analytic and algorithmic aspects of the Galois theory of linear differential equations by focusing on some of the main ideas and philosophies and on examples.

This book consists of ten weeks of material given as a course on ordinary differential equations for second year mathematics majors. Rather than seeking to find specific solutions, we seek to understand how all solutions are related in phase space.
