2020 Courses

  • Summer Session 2020 courses will be added throughout the winter.

Course description

Introduction to ordinary and partial differential equations. Topics include first order equations (separable, linear, homogeneous, exact); mathematical modeling (e.g., population growth, terminal velocity); qualitative methods (slope fields, phase plots, equilibria, and stability); numerical methods; second order equations (method of undetermined coefficients, application to oscillations and resonance, boundary-value problems and eigenvalues); and Fourier series. A substantial part of this course involves partial differential equations, such as the heat equation, the wave equation, and Laplace's equation.

Taking MATH 2930 and MATH 2940 simultaneously is not recommended.

Prerequisites

MATH 1920.
