MATH-UA.0268 Honors Ordinary Differential Equations

4 points. Offered in the fall.

Course Description

This class will develop rigorously the basic theory of Ordinary Differential Equations (ODEs). Existence and uniqueness of solutions to ODEs are first investigated, for linear and nonlinear problems, set on the real line or the complex plane. More qualitative questions are then considered, about the behavior of the solutions, with possible prolongations to various topics in Dynamical Systems theory. Applications to Physics and Biology will appear naturally when discussing examples.
