There is little difference between 4/E and 5/E editions of the textbook Differential Equations and Boundary Value Problems: Computing and Modeling. The major difference is isolated to Chapter 5. In chapter 5, the 4/E problems agree exactly with the 5/E problems, except for numbering of sections, and an inserted section 5.3 (5/E). This causes the section numbers to be off by one, but the problem numbers are exactly the same. The HW problems will use the 4/E problem numbers, to stop confusion, with web site warnings about mis-matched problem references. The chapter 5 contents appear below, where 4/E==4th Edition and 5/E==5th Edition.
Chapter 5. Linear Systems of Differential Equations 5.1 in 4/E and 5/E: Matrices and Linear Systems 5.2 in 4/E and 5/E: The Eigenvalue Method for Homogeneous Systems 5.3 in 5/E only: A Gallery of Solution Curves of Linear Systems [Inserted 2015] 5.3 in 4/E == 5.4 in 5/E: Second-Order Systems and Mechanical Applications 5.4 in 4/E == 5.5 in 5/E: Multiple Eigenvalue Solutions 5.5 in 4/E == 5.6 in 5/E: Matrix Exponentials and Linear Systems 5.6 in 4/E == 5.7 in 5/E: Nonhomogeneous Linear SystemsTherefore, you can use 4/E instead of 5/E. If you own edition 4/E, and you want to obtain a copy of the missing material 5.3 (5/E), then Copyright issues arise. Please know that the course web site has free PDF slides and PDF manuscripts on the topics covered in section 5.3 of 5/E. These resources have been in use for 5 or more years, and they will replace section 5.3 in the lectures. No homework is assigned from A Gallery of Solution Curves of Linear Systems.
Maple Computer LabsThere are seven (7) labs offered. The last four are extra credit, intended to replace math problems or computer labs.
- First Maple Lab never due, done in first LCB115 meeting
- maple Lab 1 intro due Week 5
- maple Lab 2 freezing pipes due Week 6 (choose pipes or cooler)
- maple Lab 2 swamp cooler due Week 6
Lab 2 swamp cooler corrected 18 Apr.
- maple Lab 3 laplace due Week 11 (week after Spring Break)
- maple Lab 4 resonance due Week 13
- maple Lab 5 brine tank due May 4
- maple Lab 6 narrows due May 4
- maple Lab 7 earthquake due May 4
Thursday Problem SessionsWeekly Thursday sessions are held in LCB 219 at 12:50pm, to discuss HW due the next week. For example, Thursday of Week 4 would discuss HW4, which is due in Week 5. Blackboard photos of the Thursday session are posted, a link appearing in the Calendar.
Bookmark of Problems DueA bookmark can be printed, to fold into your textbook. The bookmark contains all the textbook problems and computer problems. Enumeration is by week, where Week 10 is Spring Break, no homework in Week 10. Use this print to journal your homework assignments. Bookmark Here
Problem Notes for Graded Problems
Problem Notes exist, organized by chapter, for Chapters 1-7 and 9. Click here for the
These notes sometimes have answers which are either not in the book or are different from the book answers. The notes originated from email messages, office visits and grader remarks.
Extra Credit Problems and Extra Credit Maple Labs can be found
These problems replace scores of zero or 50 on homework. They do not affect exam scores or quiz scores.
Extra credit is also possible by submitting an extra credit maple lab. Submit by May 4. Maple labs 5, 6, 7 are extra credit.
Studying for Exams. Please read the study guide problems, none of which are due. For example, HW3 lists 2.4: 2, 3, 4, 10, 12, 17 as study problems and boxed problem 6 as due in week 4. Reading the problems is important for developing problem-solving intuition. Mostly, you look for problems that you know how to solve. Any mystery detected should be solved: be a good detective.
Sample Exams will be posted in the calendar when available.
