    While many standard texts on differential equations emphasize theory, Applied Differential Equations for the Real World: An Applications-Based Approach explains how to actually create and solve differential equations for real-world situations using clear, concise language to make the concepts easily accessible to students.

    The book begins with an explanation of basic applications. Subsequent chapters cover separable equations, first-order linear differential equations, and Bernoulli equations. Students also learn exact differential equations, second-order constant coefficient homogenous linear differential equations, non-homogenous differential equations, and methods for non-constant coefficient differential equations, each with specific real-world applications. Each chapter includes definitions of key terms, which are highlighted in the text, and frequent problem sets after the introduction of each new concept.

    With its practical, applications-based approach, Applied Differential Equations for the Real World is well suited to introductory courses in the discipline, particularly those for students of mathematics and engineering.

    Richard Moscatello earned his master's degree in statistics with an emphasis on probability at the University of South Florida, and pursued post-graduate studies at Tulane University. He is now a faculty member at Louisiana State University, where he has taught courses in algebra, calculus, multivariate calculus, linear algebra, and probability theory, as well as differential equations. He most recently authored the article Satisfied with Poverty: An Argument for Ending Welfare.
