Hours & Credits
The aim of this course is to introduce the student to a selection of fundamental topics in Applied Mathematics. This half-course consists of two modules from MAM2046W, one of which should be the module 2OD: ORDINARY DIFFERENTIAL EQUATIONS, which covers:
First order linear and nonlinear equations; existence and uniqueness of solutions. Linear equations of the n-th order and systems of n linear first order equations. Nonhomogeneous linear equations and systems; variation of parameters; qualitative theory of nonlinear equations; phase plane analysis; externally and parametrically driven oscillators; resonances; application to the theory of nonlinear vibrations. Calculus of variations.
Credits earned vary according to the policies of the students' home institutions. According to ISA policy and possible visa requirements, students must maintain full-time enrollment status, as determined by their home institutions, for the duration of the program.
