Course Objective The general pourpose of this course is to provide an understanding of ordinary differential equations (ODEs), and to give methods for solving them. Because differential equations express relationships between changing quantities, this material is applicable to many fields, and is essential for students of engineering and physical sciences.
Course Content Basic concepts and classifying differential equations, First-order diffential equations and their engineering applications, Second and higher order differential equations and engineering applications, Power series solutions of linear equations with variable coefficients, Systems of linear differential equations: Scalar and Matrix methods, Laplace trasnformations, Numerical methods for ordinary differential equations.
