Differential Equations – Morris W. Hirsch – 2nd Edition

Thirty years in the making, this revised text by three of the world’s leading mathematicians covers the dynamical aspects of ordinary differential . it explores the relations between dynamical systems and certain fields outside pure mathematics, and has become the standard textbook for graduate courses in this . The Second Edition now brings to the brink of contemporary research, starting from a background that includes only calculus and elementary linear algebra.

The authors are tops in the field of advanced mathematics, including Steve Smale who is a recipient of the Field’s Medal for his work in dynamical systems.
