Course Description:
Differential equations provide one of the most powerful mathematical tools for understanding the natural world. Since rates of change are commonly expressed using derivatives, differential equations arise whenever some continuously varying quantities and their rates of change in space or time are known or postulated. Whether seeking to understand biological processes, behaviours of solids or liquids, ecological systems, or mechanical systems, differential equations provide essential insights. The modelling range of differential equations extends well into the world of human endeavour, for example, they are important for understanding financial markets, or even traffic flows.
