Ordinary and Partial Differential Equations by M D Raisinghania
Book Summary:

This book has been designed for the use of honours and postgraduate students of various Indian universities. It will also be found useful by the students preparing for various competitive examinations.Do not start this book with an unreasonable fear. There are no mysteries in Mathematics. It is all simple and honest reasoning explained step by step which anybody can follow with a little effort and concentration. Often a student has difficulty in following a mathematical explanation only because the author skips steps which he assumes the students to be familiar with. If the student fails to recount the missing steps, he may be faced with a gap in the reasoning and the author’s conclusion may become mysterious to him.

Questions asked in recent papers of GATE and various university examinations have been inserted at appropriate places. This enriched inclusion of solved examples and variety of new exercises at the end of each article and chapter makes this book more useful to the reader.

Audience of the Book :
[For BA, B.Sc. and Honours (Mathematics and Physics), M.A., M.Sc. (Mathematics and Physics), B.E. Students of Various Universities and for I.A.S., P.C.S., A.M.I.E. GATE, C.S.I.R. U.G.C. NET and Various Competitive Examinations]
Key Features:

The following major changes have been made in the present edition:

  • Almost all the chapters have been rewritten so that in the present form, the reader will not find any difficulty in understanding the subject matter.
  • The matter of the previous edition has been re-organised so that now each topic gets its proper place in the book.
  • More solved examples have been added so that the reader may gain confidence in the techniques of solving problems.
  • References to the latest papers of various universities and I.A.S. examination have been made at proper places.
  • Errors and omissions of the previous edition have been corrected
