Differential equations

Introduction

Unit image

This unit extends the ideas introduced in the unit on first-order differential equations to a particular type of second-order differential equation which has a variety of applications. The unit assumes that you have previously had a basic grounding in calculus, know something about first-order differential equations and have some familiarity with complex numbers.

This study unit is an adapted extract from the Open University course MST209 Mathematical methods and models, which is no longer taught by the University. If you want to study formally with us, you may wish to explore other courses we offer in this subject area [Tip: hold Ctrl and click a link to open it in a new tab. (Hide tip)] .
