All the syntax of the book in Maple V, release 3 can be found at this site.
All the syntax of the book in Maple 6 can be found at this location. The code will also run with Maple V, release 5.
Page iv, Yeargers address:
Change: the School of Biology ZIP code should be 30332-0230
Page iv, mid-page: <br>
Change: 1. Shonkwiler, Ronald K., 1942 - .
to read 1. Shonkwiler, Ronald W., 1942 - .
Page 8: Second paragraph, next to last sentence:
Change “preceeding” to “preceding”
Page 24: second line:
add a parenthesis
Page 37: four lines from the bottom
a factor of exp(-t) is missing in the first term, so that
y(t) = 1/9 + C1 exp(2t) + C2 t exp(2t)
y(t) = exp(-t)/9 + C1 exp(2t) + C2 t exp(2t)
Page 45 and 46: Exercise 2
Use the same differential equation in part (a) as in (b) and (c)
so that the first line of the syntax for Exercise 2 (a) reads
Page 59: top line
Add a top line
> with(stats); with(describe);
Page 152: Middle of the page
In the definition of death rate, change "n" to "t" in two places.
Page 229: The equation x(t)=-a x(t)+2 should read x’(t)=-a x(t)+2.
Page 230, line 9: The equation x(t)=-a x(t) should read x’(t)=-a x(t).
Page 281, Figure 9.2.10.
Page 291, Figure 9.3.2.
Page 314: Exercise 2:
The figure referenced 9.3.3 should be 9.6.2.
Page 314: Exercise 3:
Remove the word "for" in the first line so that the line reads
"Draw the graph of the solution c(t) in equation (9.3.2) with constants"
Page 348: Exercise 4:
should be changed to read
Page 383, Figure 11.3.3.
