A Modeling Approach
- Courtney Brown - Emory University, USA
- The text is accessibly written, so that students with minimal mathematical training can understand all of the basic concepts and techniques presented.
- The author uses social sciences examples to illustrate the relevance of differential equation modeling to readers.
- Readers can use graphical methods to produce penetrating analysis of differential equation systems.
- Linear and nonlinear model specifications are explained from a social science perspective. Most interesting differential equation models are nonlinear, and readers need to know how to specify and work with such models in the social sciences.
"A reader with a strong background in mathematics, at least two semesters of calculus, and interest in the social sciences will find the book helpful in learning how this area of mathematics can be used in different applications."
