AMATH – Introduction to Differential Equations. David Harmsworth. Spring Course Notes by John Wainwright. AMATH is an advanced-level version of AMATH Compared to AMATH , AMATH offers a more theoretical treatment of differential equations and . Is this really as easy as people say? Is the difficulty prof dependant? How is the course otherwise (proof vs computation)?.

A rigorous introduction to amxth field of computational mathematics. AM is thus the ideal course for students who wish to consolidate their understanding of single variable calculus while applying it to problems in the sciences and engineering. It was one of the worst marks I’ve ever gotten in university not really because it was hard, but because I thought it would be easy.

Introduction to linear partial differential equations.

Additional topics as time permits. I don’t know, I’m taking it next semester but I think in general you shouldn’t bank on any course being easy even if people say it is. Topics include ecology, epidemiology, microbiology, and physiology.

AM provides an introduction to all Applied Mathematics programs, and is taken by all Applied Mathematics students. The course overall is difficult for students who lack these skills and intuition. Is the difficulty prof dependant?


Many students had trouble with something as simple as Newton’s second law. Simple applications to finite and extended one-dimensional systems, harmonic oscillator, rigid rotor and hydrogen atom. Understanding the solutions of the differential equation is then of paramount interest. In addition, emphasis will be placed on computational analysis of differential equations and on applications in science and engineering.

Applications include an introduction to Hamilton’s Principle and optimal control. Fourier series and the Fourier transform. Higher order linear ordinary differential equations. The course is easy if you have good intuition on physics and mathematics.

Techniques include difference equations, ordinary differential equations, partial differential equations, stability analysis, phase plane amaath, travelling wave solutions, mathematical software.

Examples from fluid and solid mechanics. An introduction to dynamic mathematical modeling of cellular processes.

Vector integral calculus-line integrals, surface integrals and vector fields, Green’s theorem, the Divergence theorem, and Stokes’ theorem. Second order linear differential equations with non-constant coefficients, Sturm comparison, oscillation and separation theorems, series solutions and special functions. If you don’t mind physics questions you’re fine. Applications include oversampling, denoising of audio, data compression and singularity detection.


The Schwarzschild solution and applications. Numerical methods for differential equations. Posts and comments on this subreddit may be removed at moderator discretion.

An introduction to contemporary mathematical concepts in signal analysis.

Complex numbers, Cauchy-Riemann equations, analytic functions, conformal maps and applications to the solution of Laplace’s equation, contour integrals, 2550 integral formula, Taylor and Laurent expansions, residue calculus and applications.

Basic concepts of quantum mechanics: Applications to physical problems will be a motivating influence. Stress and strain tensors; analysis of stress and strain. Treat every course like it’s a hard course.
