any diff eq. book would do...

i mean, diff. eqs (pdes and odes) are all over physics, so pretty much all teoreticall physics articles will have an embedded DE on them

sorry for bad english

I second ReyChquito in this.
1. Fluid mechanics: Navier-Stokes, Laplace's equation are diff.eq's
2. Solids: Elasticity theory is formulated with diff.eq.s
3. General relativity field equations use diff.eq's
4.Quantum Mechanics: The Schrödinger equation is a differential equation
+ a lot more

Differential equations ARE physics, well, almost all differential equations are derived for physics to model a physical system.
