In this course, the ordinary differential equations and their applications will be considered. The course will demonstrate the usefulness of ordinary differential equations for modeling physical and engineering problems. Complementary mathematical approaches for their solution will be presented, including analytical methods. The basic content of the course includes first order ordinary differential equations and their types of exact, separable, Bernoulli, first order, homogeneous ordinary differential equations, linear independence of the solutions, higher order ordinary differential equations and their solutions. The undetermined coefficient methods, variation of parameter method, Cauchy-Euler equations. The definition of the Laplace transform and some important applications of the Laplace transform will be included in this lecture. Finally, some example will be considered to show the importance of the Laplace Transform in engineering.
