Nonlinear ordinary differential equations was first published in 1977 and has since become a standard text in the teaching of the subject. It takes a qualitative approach, and is designed for advanced undergraduate and graduate students of dynamical systems in mathematics or mathematics-related subjects. The text of this third edition has been completely revised to bring it into line with current teaching, including an expansion of the material on bifurcations and chaos. The book is directed towards practical applications of the theory, with several hundred examples and problems covering a wide variety of applications. Prerequisites are kept to a minimum, with appendices containing the necessary mathematical theory new to this edition. From reviews of the first edition: The book can profitably be used in a senior undergraduate course. It is well written, well motivated and contains some recent developments of interest which have not been readily accessible before at this level. V. Lakshmikantham in Mathematical Reviews From reviews of the second edition: The subject has wide applications in physical, biological, and social sciences which continuously supply new problems of practical and theoretical importance. The book does a good job in motivating the reader in such pursuits, and presents the subject in a simple but elegant style. P. K. Kythe in Applied Mechanics Reviews

Prior to his retirement, Dominic Jordan was a professor in the Mathematics Department at Keele University. His research interests include applications of applied mathematics to elasticity, asymptotic theory, wave and diffusion problems, as well as research on the development of applied mathematics in its close association with late 19th century engineering technologies. Peter Smith is a professor in the Mathematics Department of Keele University. He has taught courses in mathematical methods, applied analysis, dynamics, stochastic processes, and nonlinear differential equations, and his research interests include fluid dynamics and applied analysis.
