    Course Description

    Basic theory of ordinary and partial differential equations useful in applications. First- and second-order equations, separation of variables, Fourier series, Laplace transforms.

  3. Justification

    A. Please briefly explain why it is necessary and/or desirable to add this course.

    This course teaches students the tools necessary to describe natural and physical phenomena mathematically.

    B. What is the need or demand for this course? (Indicate if this course is part of a required sequence in the major.) What other programs would this course service?

    The ability to solve differential equations is vital in the research the students will perform in their graduate studies. This course could also service ALL of the other engineering disciplines.

    C. Has this course been offered as Selected Topics/Experimental Topics course? If yes, how many times?


    D. What qualifications for training and/or experience are necessary to teach this course? (List minimum qualifications for the instructor.)

    At least two graduate mathematics courses. One course being differential equations.

  4. Other Course Information

    A. Objectives

    To teach students techniques for solving ordinary and partial differential equations.

    B. Learning Outcomes

    Students will successfully apply the method of undetermined coefficients and variations of parameters in solving ordinary differential equations; and the method of separation of variables and eigenfunction expansions in solving partial differential equations.
