MTH 2220 - Differential Equations

Credits: 4
An introduction to ordinary differential equations and their use in science and engineering. Topics include first order separable, linear, homogeneous, and exact equations; higher order linear equations and first order linear systems; elementary numerical methods; and an introduction to planar dynamical systems and their local phase portraits at critical points. An emphasis is placed on linear equations and systems and their solution using techniques such as eigenvalues, variation of parameters, Laplace transform, and power series. Graphing calculator is required. We recommend TI-84+.
Prerequisite(s): MTH 2219  or consent of the instructor.
