MATH 043. Basic Differential Equations
This course emphasizes the standard techniques used to solve differential equations. It will cover the basic theory of the field with an eye toward practical applications. Standard topics include first-order equations, linear differential equations, series solutions, first-order systems of equations, Laplace transforms, approximation methods, and some partial differential equations. Compare with MATH 044 . Students may not take both MATH 043 and MATH 044 for credit. The department prefers majors to take MATH 044 .
