Applied ODEs

Welcome to Applied ODEs (APMA 0350)

This course provides a comprehensive introduction to ordinary differential equations and their applications. During the course, we will see how applied mathematicians use ordinary differential equations to solve practical applications, from understanding the underlying problem, creating a differential-equations model, solving the model using analytical, numerical, or qualitative methods, and interpreting the findings in terms of the original problem. We will also learn about the underlying rigorous theoretical foundations of differential equations.

My name is Bjorn Sandstede, and I am very excited to teach APMA 0350 in Fall 2021. I will use this website for the syllabus. All course materials will be posted on Canvas.
