MATH 312 - Differential Equations


A survey of differential equations as a tool for the study of smoothly varying quantities, with applications ranging from the physical sciences (e.g. radioactive decay and mechanics) to human behavior (e.g. economics and linguistics). We introduce famous scalar and vector differential equations as modeling tools. We cover standard analytical, computational, and qualitative methods for studying differential equations. Further topics can include the Laplace transform, an introduction to partial differential equations, dynamical systems, specialized applications, or rigorous existence and uniqueness theorems. Prerequisite(s):  MATH 236  and MATH 237 . Every semester. (4 Credits)
