Book description
Modern and comprehensive, the new sixth edition of Zill’s Advanced Engineering Mathematics is a full compendium of topics that are most often covered in engineering mathematics courses, and is extremely flexible to meet the unique needs of courses ranging from ordinary differential equations to vector calculus. A key strength of this bestselling text is Zill’s emphasis on differential equation as mathematical models, discussing the constructs and pitfalls of each.
