This book illustrates the fundamental concepts on ordinary differential equations and the principal numerical (classical finite–difference and spectral) methods of solution. The practical aspect of the matter and its application to engineering problems are considered of paramount importance. The book has been written with the intent of making the basic concepts available to scientists and engineers who apply the mathematical theory to solve problems arising in the practice of their respective professions. Examples of calculations for the most popular methods and performance comparisons are given.Alessandro De Iaco Veris is graduated in both civil and aerospace engineering at the University of Rome. He works with MBDA Italia (Missile Systems). His principal field of interest is the development of mathematical models and numerical methods applied to aerodynamics, flight mechanics, system studies and mission analysis.
