MATH 308 Ordinary Differential Equations

Describing Evolving Systems and Predicting Their Future

The most concise mathematical expression that describes a continuously changing physical system is a differential equation, which uses derivatives to quantify all possible states of an evolving system in one equation. Topics include first-order differential equations, second-order linear differential equations, power-series solutions, Laplace transforms, numerical methods of solution, and systems of differential equations. (4 credits) Prerequisite: MATH 283
