Chapter 1 INTRODUCTION AND GENERAL OUTLINE Physical problems in engineering science are often described by difยญ ferential models either linear or nonlinear. There is also an abundance of transformations of various types that appear in the literature of engineerยญ ing and mathematics that are generally aimed at obtaining some sort of simplification of a differential model
