Differential Equations

by William Boyce and Richard DiPrima

This is a beautiful introduction to differential equations. The authors do a great job of introducing both simple and complex concepts. A nice feature of this book is the use of some more advanced mathematics than is typically seen in an introductory course like this one. Readers unfamiliar with this book can see what others have said here.

To learn this material as well as possible I'm working through the book's exercises and wrote up solutions as I went along. This is a work in progress that currently includes solutions to all questions in Chapters 1-8 (inclusive). While not the solutions to all problems (yet) the book as it currently stands is almost 970 pages long.


You can find the computational exercises (without explanations) for free in the links below. I'm selling the text description of my solutions in PDF format for $75.00 (US dollars) via PayPal (see the link below). While this may seem expensive (and I'm sorry about that) due to the number of problems in each chapter this solution manual has taken many years to finish and was a massive amount of work. In the end, the cost above is small (I think) to the stronger guarantee that your learning the material correctly.

As always, I am interested in hearing about any errors that might exist in this material.
