Courses in Dynamical Systems

At Boston University

###
MA 226 Ordinary Differential Equations

A sophomore level differential equations course taught from
a modern perspective using ideas from dynamical systems theory.
This course has been developed at Boston Univesity as part of the
BU Differential Equations Project.
Prerequisites: calculus. Offered each term.

A course in discrete dynamical systems taught at the sophomore-junior level.
MA 671 is available for graduate credit for students from outside of
the Mathematics Department. Prerequisites: calculus.
Offered most years in Fall.

###
MA 565 Mathematical Models in the Life Sciences

A course dealing with the construction, analysis, and interpretation of
mathematical models in ecology. Prerequisite: introductory differential
equations. Offered every other year in Spring.

###
MA 573 Qualitative Theory of Ordinary Differential Equations

A course in continuous dynamical systems taught
at the advanced undergraduate/beginning graduate level.
Prerequisites: linear algebra and advanced calculus.
Offered each Fall.

A course in discrete dynamical systems taught at the
beginning graduate level. Prerequisites: linear algebra, real analysis.
Offered each Spring.

A advanced course in smooth dynamical systems taught at the
beginning graduate level. Prerequisites: linear algebra, real analysis.
Offered each Fall.

** Note:**The courses MA 573, MA 771, and MA 775 form the required courses for
the Ph.D. Qualifying Exam in Dynamical Systems.

###
MA 871-872 Topics in Dynamical Systems
