MATH 3230 - Introduction to Differential Equations

Fall. 4 credits. Student option grading.

Forbidden Overlap: Due to an overlap in content, students will not receive credit for both MATH 3230 and MATH 4280 .
Prerequisite: multivariable calculus and linear algebra (e.g., MATH 2210 -MATH 2220 , MATH 2230 -MATH 2240 , or MATH 1920  and MATH 2940 ), or permission of instructor.


A brief one-semester introduction to the theory and techniques of both ordinary and partial differential equations. Topics for ordinary differential equations may include initial-value and two-point boundary value problems, the basic existence and uniqueness theorems, continuous dependence on data, stability of fix-points, numerical methods, special functions. Topics for partial differential equations may include the Poisson, heat and wave equations, boundary and initial-boundary value problems, maximum principles, continuous dependence on data, separation of variables, Fourier series, Green’s functions, numerical methods, transform methods.
