Students should be aware that following these solutions is very different from designing and constructing one's own solution.Using this supplemental resource appropriately for learning differential equations is outlined as follows:
1. Make an honest attempt to solve the problem without using the guide.
2. If needed, glance at the beginning of the solution in the guide and then try again to generate the complete solution.Continue using the guide for hints when you reach an impasse.
3. Compare your final solution with the one provided to see whether yours is more or less efficient than the guide, since there is frequently more than one correct way to solve a problem.
4. Ask yourself why that particular problem was assigned.
The use of a symbolic computational software package, in many cases, would greatly simplify finding the solution to a given problem, but the details given in this solutions manual are important for the student's understanding of the underlying mathematical principles and applications. In other cases, these software packages are essential for completing the given problem, as the calculations would be overwhelming using analytical techniques. In these cases, some steps or hints are given and then reference made to the use of an appropriate software package.

In order to simplify the text, the following abbreviations have been used:
D.E. differential equation(s)
0.D.E. ordinary differential equation(s)
P.D.E. partial differential equation(s)

I wish to express my appreciation to Mrs. Susan A. Hickey for her excellent typing and proofreading of all stages of the manuscript. Dr. Josef Torok has also provided invaluable assistance with the preparation of the figures as well as assistance with many of the solutions involving the use of symbolic computational software.

2. For y > 3/2 we see that y' > 0
and thus y(t) is increasing there. For y < 3/2 we have y' < 0 and thus y(t) is decreasing there. Hence y(t) diverges from 3/2 as t^ro.
4. Observing the direction field, we see that for y>-1/2 we have y'<0, so the solution is decreasing here. Likewise, for y<-1/2 we have y'>0 and thus y(t) is increasing here.
Since the slopes get closer to zero as y gets closer to -1/2, we conclude that y^-1/2 as t^ro.
If all solutions approach 3, then 3 is the equilibrium

solution and we want --------- < 0 for y > 3 and --------- > 0 for

y < 3. Thus -------- = 3-y.

11. For y = 0 and y = 4 we have y' = 0 and thus y = 0 and
y = 4 are equilibrium solutions. For y > 4, y' < 0 so if y(0) > 4 the solution approaches y = 4 from above. If
0 < y(0) < 4, then y' > 0 and the solutions "grow" to y = 4 as t^ro. For y(0) < 0 we see that y' < 0 and the solutions diverge from 0.
13. Since y' = y2, y = 0 is the equilibrium solution and y' > 0 for all y. Thus if y(0) > 0, solutions will diverge from
0 and if y(0) < 0, solutions will aproach y = 0 as t^ro.

15b. The equilibrium solution occurs when q = 0, or c = 10 gm,
independent of the amount present at t = 0 (all solutions
approach the equilibrium solution).
