Course Description

Ordinary differential equations arise from quantitative description of natural and social phenomena. Topics are: method of explicit solution, linear equations and systems, series solutions, Sturm-Liouville boundary value problems, dynamical systems and stability, applications to mechanics, electrical networks and population of species.
