This course explores the solutions to ordinary differential equations and is intended for students in Science, Engineering, and Computer Science degree programs.
Students will solve first- and second-order linear differential equations using appropriate techniques; analyze problems from the natural and physical sciences using differential equations; use Laplace transforms to solve initial value problems and integral equations; solve systems of first-order linear differential equations; classify ordinary differential equations according to order and linearity, and identify appropriate techniques for solving each; apply numerical methods to approximate solutions to differential equations; apply qualitative techniques such as phase plane analysis to describe solutions; explore series solutions for differential equations.
