**Techniques of Applied Mathematics**

by Andrew Fowler

**Publisher**: University of Oxford 2005**Number of pages**: 141

**Description**:

This course develops mathematical techniques which are useful in solving 'real-world' problems involving differential equations, and is a development of ideas which arise in the second year differential equations course. The course embraces the ethos of mathematical modelling, and aims to show in a practical way how equations 'work', and what kinds of solution behaviours can occur.
