“Differential equations are among the most

important mathematical tools used in producing

models of physical and biological sciences, and

engineering.” They can be classified into:

Ordinary :

have 1 independent variable

Partial :

have > 1 independent variable

wave equation

heat equation

Existence of Solutions

Theorem 8.1.3 (page 372) Let

Direction Fields

At any point (x,y) on the graph of a solution of the

the slope is


Direction fields illustrate these slopes.

Example 8.1.8 (page 376) Consider

The slope at (x,y) is y (independent of x).

[x,y] = meshgrid(-2:0.5:2,-2:0.5:2);

dx = ones(9); % Generates a mesh of 1’s

dy = y; quiver(x,y,dx,dy);

Direction Field with Two Solution Curves

Forward euler method

Forward Euler Method


be the solution of the initial value problem

Numerical methods will give an approximate solution at

a discrete set of nodes

For simplicity we choose evenly spaced nodes

Taylor’s approximation

gives the forward Euler method for approximations

Examples of forward euler method

Examples of Forward Euler Method


be the solution of the initial value problem

For nodes

forward Euler method gives approximations


Error of forward euler method

Error of Forward Euler Method


be the solution of the initial value problem

For nodes

the exact solution is

and the numerical approximation equals

therefore we have the error

Richardson extrapolation

Richardson Extrapolation

It can be shown, using an analysis similar to the one on

the preceding page, that the numerical solution obtained

using the forward Euler method with step size satisfies

therefore, the approximation using step size satisfies

These two estimates can be combined to give

which has a much smaller error than

This process can be extended as in slides 36,40 Lect 7.

Systems of equations

Systems of Equations

The general form of a system of two first-order

differential equations is (page 432)

This system can be simply represented using vectors

Homework Due Lab 5 (Week 13, 12-16 November)

1. The logistic equation

was proposed as a model for population growth

by Peirre Verhulst in 1838. Draw its direction fields

and solution curves for Y(0) = .5K and Y(0)=1.5K.

2. Implement the forward Euler method to compute the two solutions above. Use plots and tables to show how Richardson extrapolation decreases the errors.

3. Study the Lotka-Volterra predator-prey model on page 433 and then do problem 9 on page 441. Extra Credit: Use the secant method to compute the smallest x > 0 so that Y(x) = Y(0)where Y is the solution in part (b).

4. Write the MATLAB Program on page 445, study pages 446-448, and do problem 7 on page 449.
