Differential Equations II (MATH*3100)

Code and section: MATH*3100*01

Term: Winter


This course continues the study of differential equations. Power series solutions around regular singular points including Bessel equations are presented. First order linear systems and their general solution by matrix methods are thoroughly covered. Nonlinear systems are introduced along with the concepts of linearization, stability of equilibria, phase plane analysis, Lyapunov's method, periodic solutions and limit cycles. Two-point boundary value problems are discussed and an introduction to linear partial differential equations and their solution by separation of variables and Fourier series is given.
