About

The course is the basic course in the theory of ordinary differential equations (ODE) with examples of mathematical modelling with ODE from physics, chemistry, environmental problems. In the theoretical part we study existence, uniqueness and stability concepts for ODE, theory for linear systems of ODE, methods for non-linear ODE such as Poincaré mapping and Lyapunovs  functions. Students are going to carry out 2–3 smaller modelling projects, in groups of 2–3 people, that includes formulation of a problem, its mathematical analysis, numerical computations with help of Matlab and representing results as a short scientific rapport.
