MATH 044. Differential Equations

An introduction to differential equations that has a more theoretical flavor than MATH 043  and is intended for students who enjoy delving into the mathematics behind the techniques. Problems are considered from analytical, qualitative, and numerical viewpoints, with an emphasis on the formulation of differential equations and the interpretations of their solutions. This course does not place as strong an emphasis on solution techniques as MATH 043  and thus may not be as useful to the more applied student. Students may not take both MATH 043  and 044 for credit. The department prefers majors to take MATH 044.
Prerequisite: Linear algebra and several-variable calculus or permission of the instructor.
Natural sciences and engineering.
1 credit.
