A first course in ordinary differential equations, with an emphasis on mathematical modeling: solution curves, direction fields, existence and uniqueness, approximate solutions, first-order and second-order linear equations, linear systems, and phase portraits.
As a result of completing this course, students will be able to: 1) classify ordinary differential equations by their type and order; 2) solve the 1st order differential equations by either analytical methods, or numerically, or by performing the stability analysis; 3) solve the 2nd order homogeneous linear differential equations with constant coefficients by the characteristic method and some inhomogeneous equations via the method of undetermined coefficients or variation of parameters method; 4) classify system of ODEs into linear and nonlinear cases; solve linear systems by the method of eigenvalues and eigenvectors; understand a general behavior of nonlinear systems; 5) use the Laplace transform to solve Initial Value Problems; 6) solve numerically basic ODEs via MATLAB.
