MATH 2930

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2019-2020.

Introduction to ordinary and partial differential equations. Topics include: first-order equations (separable, linear, homogeneous, exact); mathematical modeling (e.g., population growth, terminal velocity); qualitative methods (slope fields, phase plots, equilibria, and stability); numerical methods; second-order equations (method of undetermined coefficients, application to oscillations and resonance, boundary-value problems and eigenvalues); and Fourier series. A substantial part of this course involves partial differential equations, such as the heat equation, the wave equation, and Laplace's equation. (This part must be present in any outside course being considered for transfer credit to Cornell as a substitute for MATH 2930.)

When Offered Fall, Spring, Summer.

Prerequisites/Corequisites Prerequisite: MATH 1920.

Distribution Category (MQR-AS)

Comments Taking MATH 2930 and MATH 2940 simultaneously is not recommended.
