Analytic Solutions to Nonlinear Differential Equations
Most studies of nonlinear differential equations deal with a variety of techniques of how to best approximate the solution to nonlinear differential equations. The resulting solutions are termed “good enough,” usually because there are not other techniques to obtain solutions or because practice often shows that the solutions predict performance reasonably well. Such techniques are included in the remaining chapters of this text.
