About this Unit
Differential equations arise naturally both in abstract mathematics and in the study of many phenomena. This unit provides the theory of ordinary differential equations and an introduction to partial differential equations together with methods of solution. Examples are drawn from a wide range of biological, chemical, physical and economic applications.
