Math 224-01: Differential Equations: Reading Homework 1.5
- Introduction to Modeling and Systems : what is modeling? what are the interrelated steps to using models to explain outcomes of an observable situation?
- Systems : what is a differential system? a linear differential system?
- Models :
- radioactive decay : what is the decay law? what differential equation does it lead to? how does radiocarbon dating work?
- Galilean vertical motion : what is the logic leading to the Galilean model of vertical motion? how does Newton modify it?
- Dynamical Systems : what are the state variables of a model?
- Modeling : what is the (close-to) last step in the modeling process?
- IVPs : how are initial value problems related to modeling? how many initial conditions might we expect an IVP to have?
