Publisher: Academic Press; 3 edition (2012, Mar 26th).
Hirsch, Devaney, and Smale's classic Differential Equations, Dynamical Systems, and an Introduction to Chaos has been used by professors as the primary text for undergraduate and graduate level courses covering differential equations. It provides a theoretical approach to dynamical systems and chaos written for a diverse student population among the fields of mathematics, science, and engineering. Prominent experts provide everything students need to know about dynamical systems as students seek to develop sufficient mathematical skills to analyze the types of differential equations that arise in their area of study. The authors provide rigorous exercises and examples clearly and easily by slowly introducing linear systems of differential equations. moreMore Info | Check Availability

Format: Kindle Edition
Publisher: Zebra Press (2000, Jan 1st).
Every dog has a tale … and Oscar’s is more unique than most! When Oscar found himself on ‘death row’ in an animal shelter after being abandoned, he had little hope of survival. But when Joanne Lefson laid eyes on him, it was love at first sight: he was just what she needed to make her new house a home. Soon, Joanne noticed that Oscar’s goofy looks and delightful nature drew attention everywhere they went. Inspired by her canine companion’s laid-back attitude, his undying devotion and her own love of dogs, Joanne decided to expose the plight of the approximately 475 million homeless dogs in the world looking for a home.The result: the ‘World Woof Tour’, an apparently hare-brained scheme that involved Joanne and Oscar embarking on an eight-month journey across five continents to visit over 60 welfare organisations. moreMore Info | Check Availability

Author/Actors/Director/etc.: Mark Stein
Format: Kindle Edition
Publisher: Smithsonian Books (2011, Jun 7th).
Booklist Stein’s How the States Got Their Shapes (2008) described why the American states look the way they do—how their borders landed where they did. This equally informative follow-up puts the spotlight on the people responsible for shaping those borders. People like Roger Williams, the Puritan minister who was expelled from the Massachusetts Bay Colony for advocating against the Church of England and established the township of Providence at the tip of the bay, and Anne Hutchinson, also banished, who secured the rights to a small island called Aquidneck by the Indians and Rhode Island by the British. Or—and this is a curious one—Robert Jenkins, the sea captain whose severed ear played a key role in establishing the boundary between Florida and Georgia. moreMore Info | Check Availability
