Course information

Content and learning outcomes

Course contents *

  • First order ordinary differential equations: Fundamental theory and concepts, separable and linear equations, modeling.
  • Linear ordinary differential equations of higher order and systems of linear ordinary differential equations: Fundamental theory, finding solutions in specific cases, in particular the case of constant coefficients, discussion of properties of solutions.
  • Autonomous systems: Fundamental concepts, stationary solutions and their stability, applications to dynamical systems and scientific modeling.
  • Integral transforms: Laplace transform and Fourier series, and their application to differential equations.
  • Introduction to partial differential equations: Solution of classical boundary value problems.
  • Group project: Application to concrete problems connected to the construction area and the built environment.

Intended learning outcomes *

After passing the course, the students should be able to

  • use concepts, theorems and methods to solve, and present the solution to, problems within theparts of the theory of differential equations that are described by the course content;
  • apply and combine in the form of a group project the methods of differential equations to apractical problem connected to the construction area and the built environment;
  • read and comprehend mathematical text.

Based on recommendation from KTH’s coordinator for disabilities, the examiner will decide how to adapt an examination for students with documented disability.

The examiner may apply another examination format when re-examining individual students.

The examiner decides, in consultation with KTHs Coordinator of students with disabilities (Funka), about any customized examination for students with documented, lasting disability. 

Other requirements for final grade *

Written exam, possibly with continuous examination. A project with presentation.
