This textbook addresses the challenges that undergraduate mathematics, engineering and science students face during a first course on differential equations. It covers all the standard parts of the subject while emphasising linear constant coefficient equations and applications, including the topics essential to engineering students.

Who is it for? First-year mathematics undergraduates, scientists or engineers.

Presentation: It is clearly laid out with a standard approach to the subject. The inclusion of phase plane analysis and Laplace transforms extends its interest. Ample examples, two-colour summary boxes and illustrations make it an attractive book to read.

Would you recommend it? This joins the crowded market of undergraduate introductions to differential equations; it is a comparator text to James C. Robinson's Introduction to Ordinary Differential Equations.
