MATH 2930 - Differential Equations for Engineers

Fall, spring, summer. 4 credits.

Prerequisite: MATH 1920 . Taking MATH 2930 and MATH 2940  simultaneously is not recommended.


Introduction to ordinary and partial differential equations. Topics include: first-order equations (separable, linear, homogeneous, exact); mathematical modeling (e.g., population growth, terminal velocity); qualitative methods (slope fields, phase plots, equilibria, and stability); numerical methods; second-order equations (method of undetermined coefficients, application to oscillations and resonance, boundary-value problems and eigenvalues); Fourier series; linear partial differential equations (heat flow, waves, the Laplace equation); and linear systems of ordinary differential equations.
