Solving Differential Equations Analytically. Elementary Differential Equations. Modules and Monographs in Undergraduate Mathematics and Its Applications Project. UMAP Unit 335.
Goldston, J. W.
This unit introduces analytic solutions of ordinary differential equations. The objective is to enable the student to decide whether a given function solves a given differential equation. Examples of problems from biology and chemistry are covered. Problem sets, quizzes, and a model exam are included, and answers to all items are provided. The material is intended to amplify the examples of Units 81 through 83, titled "Graphical Solution of Differential Equations." Taken as a group, the four units are seen as a general introduction to a number of standard techniques for solving first-order ordinary differential equations. (MP)
