Calculus and Differential Equations l MATH 250 A Introduction to differential equations A simple differential equation 7 o Is there a function which is equal to its derivative 0 Yes 9 No o Is such a function unique 0 Yes 9 No d o The equation d y y is an example of an ordinary differential X equation 0 The independent variable is X and the dependent variable is y o The above equation is a first order autonomous and linear differential equation Introducticui to d Calculus and al Equations itial equations Introducticui to differential equations Calculus and D rential Equations Solutions of a differential equation a An explicit solution of an ordinary differential equation dy dx is a function yx such that when substituted into the differential equation both sides are found to be identical WW 0 In general a given differential equation will have a family of solutions involving one or more parameters 0 Applying initial or boundary conditions often leads to the selection of one of these solutions a We will now turn to two important questions what are differential equations used for and how do we study them a To address the first questions we now look at examples of differential equations or systems thereof Calculus and Differential Equations lntroducticui to differential equations The nonlinear pendulum The equation of motion for the nonlinear pendulum is given by d20 d0 ml

solve first and second order linear equations and systems of first order linear equations as well as some first order nonlinear equations 0 If initial conditions are known one can solve a differential equation or a system of differential equations numerically We Will learn a simple numerical method to solve a differential equation and also use more advanced algorithms in MATLAB 9 Before trying to solve a differential equation or launching into a numerical exploration of its properties one needs to know whether solutions egtltist and if so whether they are unique We Will see theorems that guarantee egtltistence and uniqueness of solutions to differential equations differential equations continued 0 In many situations especially when one deals with nonlinear differential equations one cannot find explicit solutions 9 In this case one can nevertheless understand the dynamics of a differential equations by looking at special solutions and at their stability 9 The qualitative theory of dynamical systems discussed in MATH 454 provides a way of understanding the behavior of a system of differential equations as well as the bifurcations that occur when one or more parameters are changed We will briefly address some of these issues 0 Partial differential equations discussed in MATH 322 MATH 422 and MATH 456 are differential equations describing the dynamics of systems with two or more independent variables Introducticm to differential equations Calculus and D rential Equations What we will do next 0 We will start with the simplest type of differential equations dy X dx 0 Chapter 1 of Differential Equations book Reading assignment Sections 11 12 and 13 o Solving such differential equations involves integration so we will introduce various methods of integration discussed in the Calculus book a We will then consider autonomous differential equations of the dy 7 form a 7 gy 0 Chapter 2 of the Differential Equations book 0 Ideas of stability and bifurcations 0

various methods of solution for first order differential equations 0 Chapters 4 and 5 of the Differential Equations book 0 Separation of variables and equations with homogeneous coefficients 9 First
