Course Objective

The purpose of studying the discipline is to train specialists possessing the knowledge and skills to effectively use the basic methods of the theory of differential equations to study the phenomena and processes of reality surrounding us.

Studying the discipline solves the following tasks:

– acquisition by students of knowledge in the field of the theory of differential equations;

– acquisition of practical skills in solving mathematical problems, constructing and analyzing mathematical models described by differential equations.

As a result of the training, the student must


– elementary methods of integration of ordinary differential equations;

– formulation of the Cauchy problem;

– existence and uniqueness theorems;

– basic concepts and theorems of the general theory of partial differential equations of the first order;

     be able to:

 – solve the basic types of ordinary differential equations of the first order;

– to set initial and boundary-value problems, to solve questions of existence and uniqueness of initial tasks;

– to make up the differential equations of the family of isogonal trajectories;

– solve linear homogeneous and inhomogeneous partial differential equations of the first order;


– the main methods of constructing differential models of real phenomena and processes.
