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 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.

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.

The proof of the Grobman-Hartman linearization theorem for a flow at a hyperbolic rest point proceeds by establishing the analogous result for hyperbolic fixed points of local diffeomorphisms. We present a proof that avoids the discrete case.
