# Differential Equations (Metric)

## Class Details

Tom Baker

Learn, or revise, solving first order differential equations by various methods, solving second order differential equations with constant coefficients, and classifying the critical points of systems.

## Units

### First Order

Solving differential equations of the form $$dy/dx=f(x,\,y)$$. Part of this topic is found on A-level courses, and the rest is Further Maths.

Lesson

Solving differential equations of the form $$dy/dx = f(x)\,g(y)$$, by separating the variables.

Lesson Not yet graded

Solving differential equations that can be written in the form $$d/dx(f(x,\,y))=0$$.

Lesson Not yet graded

### Second Order

Solving differential equations of the form $$a\,d^2y/dx^2+b\,dy/dx+c\,y=f(x)$$. This is a Further Maths topic; courses that require Further Maths may assume it.

### Qualitative Methods

Classifying the critical points of systems of the form $$dx/dt = f_1(x,\,y)$$, $$dy/dt = f_2(x,\,y)$$. This is part of the First Year content of some Science and Engineering courses at Imperial.
