Anti-requisite(s): 33130 Mathematical Modelling 1 AND 33190 Mathematical Modelling for Science AND 35101 Introduction to Linear Dynamical Systems


Problems as diverse as analysing the effects of interest rates or ecological change involve the study of systems that evolve in various ways. This subject provides an introduction to the modelling of change through differential equations and allows students to see something of the power of mathematics through the interplay between linear algebra and differential equations.
