{"ModuleCode":"YSC3230","ModuleTitle":"Ordinary and Partial Differential Equations","Department":"Yale-NUS College","ModuleDescription":"Much of modern science and mathematics is expressed in the language of differential equations. Population models in ecology, financial growth, heat conduction, and water waves are a few examples. In this course, students will solve the classical linear ordinary and partial differential equations. Students will assemble a toolbox of mathematical techniques to solve initial and boundary value problems, including integrating factors, separation of variables, and Fourier series. Though not prerequisites, students are strongly encouraged to take either Linear Algebra or Mathematical Methods before this course. A solid grounding in Calculus is essential.","ModuleCredit":"5","Workload":"0-4-0-0-8.5","Prerequisite":"Both YSC2232 (previously coded YSC3205) Linear Algebra and YSC3240 Foundations of Applied Mathematics, Or with the permission of the instructor.","History":[{"Semester":2,"LecturePeriods":["Monday Morning","Thursday Morning"]}]}
