These are the lecture notes for the first term of a course on differential equations, given in Fine Hall the autumn of 1968. The text covers differential calculus, Picard's method, the local structure of vector fields, sums and Lie products of vector fields, self-adjoint operators on Hilbert space, commutative multiplicity theory, extensions of Hermitean operators, sums and Lie products of self-adjoint operators.

This book concerns the problem of evolution of a round oil spot surrounded by water when oil is extracted from a well inside the spot. It turns out that the boundary of the spot remains an algebraic curve of degree four in the course of evolution.

Introductory notes on ordinary and partial differential equations for engineers. The text covers only the most important ideas. Assumed background is calculus and a little physics. Linear algebra is introduced in four of the lectures.
