The availability of
computer packages such as Maple, Mathematica, Mathcad and Matlab provides an
opportunity to easily conduct numerical experiments and to tackle realistic and
more complicated problems. The lab classes will be used with two goals in mind:
(a) demonstrate concepts seen in class, (b) allow you to become familiar with
computer software to solve differential equations. In this course mainly Matlab
will be used. In addition to the packages mentioned above, many illustrative
examples can be found at Addison-Wesley's Interactive Differential Equations website. You are encouraged
to explore these examples as you proceed in the course.
The lab classes are in WB205. Reservations for M340 are made for Tuesdays (except 9/13, 10/11, 11/15, 11/29). You will be informed in advance when your class will be in that room. You have access to this lab at other times as well, as long as it is not in use by another class. All you need is a username and a password for the computers in the lab - ask for them in class. Do not share this information with others. More lab information: click here (pdf) and here.
