Math 290 Ordinary Differential Equations (Fall 2001-Allegheny College)


 In mathematics you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
-- John von Neumann, Nobel Prize winner.

From the Catalogue:

290 Ordinary Differential Equations
An examination of methods of solving ordinary differential equations with emphasis on the existence and uniqueness of solutions of first order equations and second order linear equations. Topics may include Laplace transforms, systems of linear differential equations, power series solutions, successive approximations, linear differential equations, and oscillation theory with applications to chemistry and physics. Prerequisite: Mathematics 210.








How to start

    1. From the Mathematics department web page follow -> Faculty -> Peter Saveliev -> Personal Page -> click on Math 290. Or type saveliev.net, then go to the class page. Bookmark it! Or even better, create your own web-page with a link to the class page. This way you can get there quickly from any computer.
    2. Read the Policy.
    3. Fill in the form under Students.
    4. Try to set up a group (2-3 members) by next Friday, then e-mail the list to me. If you don't you'll be assigned to a group at random.
    5. Plan to visit my office during the next two weeks to say "Hi".
