Course Description:
The construction of mathematical models to address real-world problems has been one of the most important aspects of each of the branches of science. It is often the case that these mathematical models are formulated in terms of equations involving functions as well as their derivatives. Such equations are called differential equations. If only one independent variable is involved, often time, the equations are called ordinary differential equations. The course will demonstrate the usefulness of ordinary differential equations for modeling physical and other phenomena. Complementary mathematical approaches for their solution will be presented, including analytical methods, graphical analysis and numerical techniques. The basic content of the course includes
-- first order equations
-- mathematical models
-- linear equations of second order
-- the Laplace transform
-- linear systems of arbitrary order and matrices
-- nonlinear systems and phase plane analysis
-- numerical methods

Prerequisite:
