Differential Equations

Here are my online notes for my differential equations course that I teach here at Lamar

University. Despite the fact that these are my “class notes” they should be accessible to anyone

wanting to learn how to solve differential equations or needing a refresher on differential

equations.

I’ve tried to make these notes as self contained as possible and so all the information needed to

read through them is either from a Calculus or Algebra class or contained in other sections of the

notes.

A couple of warnings to my students who may be here to get a copy of what happened on a day

that you missed.

1. Because I wanted to make this a fairly complete set of notes for anyone wanting to learn

differential equations I have included some material that I do not usually have time to

cover in class and because this changes from semester to semester it is not noted here.

You will need to find one of your fellow class mates to see if there is something in these

notes that wasn’t covered in class.

2. In general I try to work problems in class that are different from my notes. However,

with Differential Equation many of the problems are difficult to make up on the spur of

the moment and so in this class my class work will follow these notes fairly close as far

as worked problems go. With that being said I will, on occasion, work problems off the

top of my head when I can to provide more examples than just those in my notes. Also, I

often don’t have time in class to work all of the problems in the notes and so you will

find that some sections contain problems that weren’t worked in class due to time

restrictions.

3. Sometimes questions in class will lead down paths that are not covered here. I try to

anticipate as many of the questions as possible in writing these up, but the reality is that I

can’t anticipate all the questions. Sometimes a very good question gets asked in class

that leads to insights that I’ve not included here. You should always talk to someone who

was in class on the day you missed and compare these notes to their notes and see what

the differences are.

4. This is somewhat related to the previous three items, but is important enough to merit its

own item. THESE NOTES ARE NOT A SUBSTITUTE FOR ATTENDING CLASS!!

Using these notes as a substitute for class is liable to get you in trouble. As already noted

not everything in these notes is covered in class and often material or insights not in these

notes is covered in class.

Differential Equations

There isn’t really a whole lot to this chapter it is mainly here so we can get some basic definitions

and concepts out of the way. Most of the definitions and concepts introduced here can be

introduced without any real knowledge of how to solve differential equations. Most of them are

terms that we’ll use throughout a class so getting them out of the way right at the beginning is a

good idea.

During an actual class I tend to hold off on a couple of the definitions and introduce them at a

later point when we actually start solving differential equations. The reason for this is mostly a

time issue. In this class time is usually at a premium and some of the definitions/concepts require

a differential equation and/or its solution so I use the first couple differential equations that we

will solve to introduce the definition or concept.

Here is a quick list of the topics in this Chapter.

Differential Equations

equation is any equation which contains derivatives, either ordinary derivatives or partial

derivatives.

There is one differential equation that everybody probably knows, that is Newton’s Second Law

of Motion. If an object of mass

then Newton’s Second Law tells us.

To see that this is in fact a differential equation we need to rewrite it a little. First, remember that

we can rewrite the acceleration,

should also remember at this point that the force,

and/or position.

So, with all these things in mind Newton’s Second Law can now be written as a differential

equation in terms of either the velocity,
