Course contentThis course covers the elementary theory of ordinary and partial differential equations. It is useful to all science students. Covers equations of the first order, systems of linear equations, series solutions, numerical methods for ordinary differential equations, separation of variables for partial differential equations and Fourier series.
Objectives of the courseAfter the course the student should be able to
- Solve first order linear and certain types of non-linear differential equations.
- Classify stability of equilibrium for first order differential equations with parameters.
- Know existence/uniqueness theorem for initial value problem of differential equations.
- Know the concept of linearly independent solutions and particular solutions of n-th order linear differential equations and be able to superpose solutions.
- Solve linear differential equations with power series around ordinary points.
- Classify linar and almost linear autonomous systems of differential equations with stability of equilibrium.
- Solve systems of linear differential equations with constant coeffisients.
- Make face portraits and direction fields for autonomous systems in dimenstion 2.
- Know basic theory for Fourier series and use this to solve differential equations..
- Use the method of separtation of variables on simple partial diferential equations with boundary and initial value conditions that lead to development of Fourier series.
- Use Sturm-Liouville eigenvalue theory on standard problems from separation of variables.
