COURSE This course is the first of three quarters on the theory of ordinary
DESCRIPTION differential equations and dynamical systems. During this quar-
ter we will cover the basic existence and uniqueness theory for
first order systems of ODEs: Picard's existence and uniqueness
theory, fundamental matrices, Floquet theory, Liapunov stabil-
ity, dependence on initial conditions and parameters, etc. The
goal will be to prepare you for the qualitative theory of nonlinear
systems to come in the next two quarters.
PREREQUISITES Math 118ABC or equivalent. A solid grounding in linear algebra
is strongly recommended.
GRADING Homework 34%
Midterm Exam 33%
