MTH433 Differential Equations

Lead Faculty: Dr. Igor Ya Subbotin

Course Description

A study of ordinary differential equations with emphasis on linear equations and systems of linear equations. An analysis of the existence and uniqueness of solutions of ordinary differential equations with initial conditions, so called Cauchy problem. Examines linear differential equations of first, second and higher orders, and linear systems of ordinary differential equations. Stresses application to engineering problems.
