Item description for A Short Course in Mathematical Methods With Maple by Henrik Aratyn; Constantin Rasinariu...
This unique book provides a streamlined, self-contained and modern text for a one-semester mathematical methods course with an emphasis on concepts important from the application point of view. Part I of this book follows the "paper and pencil" presentation of mathematical methods that emphasizes fundamental understanding and geometrical intuition. In addition to a complete list of standard subjects, it introduces important, contemporary topics like nonlinear differential equations, chaos and solitons. Part II employs the Maple software to cover the same topics as in Part I in a computer oriented approach to instruction. Using Maple liberates students from laborious tasks while helping them to concentrate entirely on concepts and on better visualizing the mathematical content. The focus of the text is on key ideas and basic technical and geometric insights presented in a way that closely reflects how physicists and engineers actually think about mathematics.

Martin Kosztowski Sep 15, 2006
I was actually fortunate enough to have been in Professor Aratyn's class while he was writing the book. The handouts he gave us were esentially what has been published in his book. Based on my experience in his class, I would STRONGLY recommend this book. Dr. Aratyn's class was honestly one of the best classes I have ever taken. Even though the material presented in the book is challenging, Aratyn's explanations are very clear and thorough. Your understanding and knowledge of mathematics will increase significantly after reading this book. Once again, I would STRONGLY RECOMMEND this book.
