Elementary Differential Equations and Boundary Value Problems
Key differences between 10th and 9th editions
 Period between current and previous editions: 4 years (2012 vs 2008).
 General structure of Boyce & DiPrima's textbook remains unchanged in the Tenth Ed.
 The most important changes include the following:
 20 new problems and several new historical footnotes.
 The statement that the real and imaginary parts of a complex solution of a real problem are also solutions is presented as a theorem in Sections 3.2 and 7.4.
 Derivations and proofs in several chapters have been expanded or refreshed.
 Sections 2.1, 3.8, and 7.5 has new examples.
 Section 7.8 goes into more detail of repeated eigenvalues and includes more problems.
 Sections 8.5 "Systems of First Order Equations" and 8.6 "More on Errors; Stability" have been interchanged.
 Chapter 11 is now entitled as "Boundary Value Problems and SturmLiouville Theory"
