**Ordinary Differential Equations**

by Stephen Wiggins

**Publisher**: University of Bristol 2017**Number of pages**: 146

**Description**:

This book consists of ten weeks of material given as a course on ordinary differential equations (ODEs) for second year mathematics majors at the University of Bristol. Rather than seeking to find specific solutions of ODEs, we seek to understand how all possible solutions are related in their behavior in the geometrical setting of phase space. In other words, this course has been designed to be a beginning course in ODEs from the dynamical systems point of view.
