Informed Conjecturing of Solutions for Differential Equations in a Modeling Context
Winkel, Brian
PRIMUS, v25 n2 p158-169 2015
We examine two differential equations. (i) first-order exponential growth or decay; and (ii) second order, linear, constant coefficient differential equations, and show the advantage of learning differential equations in a modeling context for informed conjectures of their solution. We follow with a discussion of the complete analysis afforded by this approach, including parameter estimation.
