(EXTRA!)ORDINARY DIFFERENTIAL EQUATIONS II-22M:214
SPRING SEMESTER 2008
This course is a continuation of 22M:213 (Ordinary Differential
Equations I). Though the course is mostly about the theory of ordinary
differential equations (ODEs), we will consider this
theory in conjunction with some theoretical and practical
aspects of numerical methods for ODEs.
