E-mail: chiconeC@missouri.edu.4PrefaceWhat is applied mathematics? Every answer to this question is likely to initiate a debate. My definition is the use of mathematics to solve problems or gain insight into phenomena that arise outside of mathematics. The prototypical example is the use of mathematics to solve problems in physics. Of course, the world of applied mathematics is much broader: important applications of mathematics occur in all areas of science, engineering, and technology.The concept of this book is to introduce the reader to one aspect of applied mathematics: the use of differential equations to solve physical problems. To cover the full (ever expanding) range of applications of mathematics would require a series of books, which would include invitations to applied mathematics using the other branches of mathematics: calculus, linear algebra, differential geometry, graph theory, combinatorics, number theory, the calculus of variations, and others. The application of statistics (especially in experimental science) is a branch of applied mathematics of great importance, but of a different character than the applied mathematics considered here.While there are already many books and articles devoted to applications of mathematical subjects, I be
