This special volume is devoted to computation in problem solving environments (PSEs) with emphasis on differential equations. Exploiting the amazing developments in computer hardware and graphical interfaces, PSEs try to make it as easy as possible to solve mathematical problems. They are so convenient in the classroom that it is unusual nowadays for a student in engineering, science, or mathematics to graduate without having used at least one PSE. The contribution of R.L. Lipsman, J.E. Osborn, and J.M. Rosenberg relates their extensive experience with teaching a first course in ordinary differential equations using the big three” PSEs, Matlab, Maple, and Mathematica……
