Linear Differential Equations is a free online course conducted by the Boston University.
The course deals with the mathematical theory of linear differential equations and their application to systems such as the mass-spring system and other linear oscillations.
About the course
Phenomena as diverse as the motion of the planets, the spread of a disease, and the oscillations of a suspension bridge are governed by differential equations.
This course is an introduction to the mathematical theory of ordinary differential equations and follows a modern dynamical systems approach. In particular, equations are analyzed using qualitative, numerical, and if possible, symbolic techniques.
- How to take advantage of techniques to model linear equations
- How to analyze equations with two dependent variables using qualitative, numerical, and symbolic techniques
- Forced second-order linear equations and related phenomena such as beats and resonance
