MATH 2500 - Ordinary Differential Equations

Prerequisite: MATH 2400
Corequisite: MATH 2600

This is an introduction to ordinary differential equations. Topics include first and second order linear equations, non-linear equations, complementary and particular solutions, linear independence and Wronskians, variation of parameters, undetermined coefficients, homogeneous equations, integrating factors, separation of variables, Laplace transforms, series solutions, eigenvalues and solving systems of differential equations, and applications. (AA,CSU,UC) (C-ID: MATH 240)

MATH 2600 - Introduction to Linear Algebra

Prerequisite: MATH 2400
Advisory: Concurrent enrollment in MATH 2500

Math 2600 is an introduction to Linear Algebra. This course develops the techniques and theory needed to solve and classify systems of linear equations. Solution techniques include row operations, Gaussian elimination, and matrix algebra. Investigates the properties of vectors in two and three dimensions, leading to the notion of an abstract vector space. Vector space and matrix theory are presented including topics such as inner products, norms, orthogonality, eigenvalues, eigenspaces, and linear transformations. Selected applications of linear algebra are included. (AA, CSU, UC)
