Basic ordinary and partial differential equations. First-order ordinary differential equations: symmetries and solutions in quadratures; existence, uniqueness and dependence on parameters, systems of first order equations, analysis of equilibria. Second order equations: series solutions and special functions, initial- and boundary-value problems for second-order equations. Elements of integral equations. First-order partial differential equations. Basic second-order partial differential equations: wave equations, heat equations, Poisson equation, Schrodinger equation.
