 Lecture 1 Play Video Fundamental Set of SolutionsFind and test whether or not a set of solutions for an ODE. This video covers the three steps which need to be preformed to determine if the set is a fundamental set of solutions. Lecture 2 Play Video Solving Differential Equations: Two Distinct Real RootsThis is a video in the series for solving systems of ordinary differential equations. The video addresses the process of solving the ODE's when they have real distinct eigenvalues. Lecture 3 Play Video Transforming Systems ODE's and Checking SolutionsThis is the introduction video to systems of Ordinary Differential Equations. The first two examples are about placing the system in matrix form then from matrices back to the system of equations. 4 minutes in the video switches topics and discusses how to check whether a vector is a solution to the system of ODE's. Lecture 4 Play Video Solving ODE's with Complex Eigen ValuesAnother video in the series how to solve a system of Ordinary Differential Equations. This video discusses what to do with complex Eigenvalues and the general solutions that result. Lecture 5 Play Video Solving Systems with Repeated Eigen ValuesAnother video in the series how to solve a system of Ordinary Differential Equations. This video discusses what to do with repeated Eigenvalues and the general solutions that result. Lecture 6 Play Video Test For Stability of the OriginThis video addresses the stability of the origin on a phase portrait of a 2X2 system of ordinary differential equations. Math aside this video kinda has it all; explanation, examples, derivation, and humor. Lecture 7 Play Video Solving Separable DE: Example IThe video moves fast remember you can pause it. This is the first film in a series of two about solving separable DEs. It starts out the same as the second but it engages a different problem. This example entertains differential equations which can be represented as two distinct functions that can be separated algebraically then integrated. Lecture 8 Play Video Solving Separable DE: Example IIThe video moves fast remember you can pause it. This is the second film in a series of two about solving separable DEs. It starts out the same as the first but it engages a different problem. This example entertains differential equations which can be represented as two distinct functions that can be separated algebraically then integrated. Lecture 9 Play Video Solve Separable DEs Using SubstitutionThe video moves fast remember you can pause it. This film is the third video on solving separable differential equations and covers the topic of using a substitution when you are presented with composition of functions in your ordinary differential equation. Lecture 10 Play Video Introduction to Differential EquationsThis is an introduction to differential equations. It provides definitions for: differential equations, ordinary differential equations, partial differential equations, order of a differential equation and linear differential equations. This short flick also gives examples of these definitions. In addition, the video talks about Leibniz and prime notation and differential form. Note: There is a mistake at 5:05. In the notation, it should read (d^3y)/(dx^3). Lecture 11 Play Video Check Homogeneous DE y=vxThis video provides a test to determine if an first order DE is homogeneous to functions which can be separated using the substitution y=vx. Lecture 12 Play Video Solving First Order Homogeneous DE: Separable First Order DE Using y=vx (Part I)This is the first video in a series of 3 about solving first order homogeneous differential equations using the change of variables y=vx. Lecture 13 Play Video Solving First Order Homogeneous DE: Separable First Order DE Using y=vx (Part II)This is the second video in a series of 3 about solving first order homogeneous differential equations using the change of variables y=vx. Lecture 14 Play Video Solving First Order Homogeneous DE: Translation and Substitution (Part III)This is the third video in a series of 3 about solving first order homogeneous differential equations using the change of variables y=vx. This flick discusses transforming a non homogeneous DE into a Homogeneous DE using linear transformations. Lecture 15 Play Video Derivation a General Solution and Integrating Factor for a Linear Differential EquationThis video defines total differential, exact equations and uses clairiots theorem to derive the form of the integrating factor for a First order linear ODE. Then the integrating factor is used to derive the formula for a general solution to a first order linear equation.
