Honors Course in Differential Equations (3 cr.) P: M212 and consent of
department. N & M Introduction, with historical examples, first order
ordinary differential equations (ODEs) and applications, second order
linear ODEs, linear ODEs of higher order, series solutions to linear
ODEs, and numerical methods for ODEs. In addition, some theoretical
aspects will be studied in detail such as the Picard
existence/uniqueness theorem for initial-value problems, convergence
of series solutions, and the matrix exponential exp(tA).
