Boyce and R. DiPrima. Description: Ordinary and partial dierential equations are fundamental tools used by modern science and engineering. In these disciplines, dierential equations are applied to produce mathematical models of complex physical phenomena. Consequently, it is seldom enough merely to know that a dierential equation has solutions. It is more important to know when these solutions are unique and how to understand and approximate their behaviors, so that one can gain insight into the physical processes the dierential equation is supposed to model. This course will introduce you to a variety of important techniques used to nd and qualitatively analyze solutions of dierential equations, with emphasis on those that arise in applications.

Discussion Sessions: Hours: TTh 5:00-6:00 p.m. JGB 2.216 TA: Nick Rauh Oce: RLM 12.132 Email: Oce hours: TBA

Restrictions and Prerequisites: The prerequisite is one of M 408D, M 408L, M 408S or the equivalent, with a grade of at least C-.

Homework problems will be posted weekly but will not be collected. Instead there will be a quiz every Thursday during the discussion session. The quiz problem is closely related to problems in the homework set. We will drop three lowest grades from your quizzes. Because of this policy no make up quiz will be given. There will be three exams in this class. The rst two exams will be given during the normal lecture period, in the normal room, each covering about 1/3 of the course material. The third exam, which is the Final Exam, will cover the last third of the course material, as well as having a comprehensive component. Exams will be closed-book, closed-note and no calculator is allowed. You should carefully examine the exam dates above, since being available for these exams is a requirement for this course. If you miss an exam I or II, you must contact me before the exam and provide a valid written very serious excuse in order to be allowed to take a make-up. No make-up exam for the nal will be given.
