Hello Everyone: I am looking for a book on Mathematica and diffential equations. My knowledge of the program is limited (though I own it) and I have not taken the Diff. Eq. course. My criteria for the book is that it be clear, comprehensive, and less than $60 (minus tax + shipping). Also, I prefer that the author(s) be unobstrusive. For those of you who know Purcell and Varberg, I prefer their writing style. My present list consists of the following: Partial Differential Equations w/ Mathematica by Dimitri Vvedensky Differential Equations w/ Mathematica by M.L. Abell & J.P. Braselton Differential Equations: An Introduction w/ Mathematica by Clay C. Ross The description of the last book states "suitable for students in mathematics , physics, and engineering." This makes it perfect for me; I need to take physics, and my major is mech. eng. If any of you know the publisher's, Springer-Verlag, telephone number please let me know. Opinions and comments on the other books are welcome. Adeau and thanks.
