Course objectives
The aim of the course is to present fundamentals of ODE theory. Student will be able to use elementary solving methods and understand simple continuous deterministic models in biology and economy.
  • 1. Fundamental concepts - equation, initial value problem, general and particular solution. 2. Elementary solving methods - linear, separable, exact equations, homogenous equations, Bernoulli equation, linear higher order equations with constant coefficients, systems of linear equations with constant coefficients. 3. Existence and uniqueness of solution, dependence on initial conditions and parameters. 4. Differential inequalities, estimation of solutions. 5. Structure of linear systems solutions. 6. Autonomous systems, orbits, stationary solutions, stability. 7. Population dynamics models. 8. Epidemiological models. 9. Models in economy.
