Gabriel E. Sosa Castillo (Section 01)


The study of differential equations is an important part of mathematics that involves many topics, both theoretical and practical. The course will cover first- and second-order ordinary differential equations, basic theorems concerning existence and uniqueness of solutions and continuous dependence on parameters, long-term behavior of solutions and approximate solutions.  The focus of the course will be on connecting the theoretical aspects of differential equations with real-world applications from physics, biology, chemistry, and engineering.  Four class hours per week.

Requisite: MATH 211 or consent of the instructor. Spring semester. Professor TBA.

If Overenrolled: Preference to seniors and mathematics majors.
