Reviews

The content of this subject is somewhat interesting. I found the Wronskian/ Abel's Theorem to be a surprising and fascinating result giving a relation between different solutions. Unfortunately much of getting a good mark in the subject revolves around being able to quickly do hard and tedious integrals - i.e integrate by parts, especially for fourier series. Very little is dedicated to understanding where things came from e.g deriving Abel's Theorem, where Fourier comes from, where Laplace Transforms come from as well as interpreting the results of a PDE solution where instead the focus was purely on robotically solving the long tedious PDE. The subject was smoothly run with no hiccups in assessments or assignments and found the tutes to be pretty helpful. Also, thought the new lecturer was rubbish.

Very harder than Vector Calculus, Differential Equations took a different level compared to Calc 2. The lecturer David taught very fairly discussing the topics across from first order to higher order equations including Laplace Transformations!!! However the exam i took had 10 questions a lot longer than the previous exams i could able to complete and check all of them in time. But barley pass this subject. Ignore the additional resources if you can manage your timing right I will endure this subject throughout the semester *unless you go to consultations or your tutors!!!

Well organised throughout the semester, lecturer was incredible, assignments were tedious but rewarding, however the final exam was MUCH more difficult than previous papers this year...

Note that this subject has a new lecturer, and has been made quite a bit easier than when Barry was lecturer. Don't be fooled though, this is still a tough subject that will require a fair amount of work. The hardest parts from the old course are left out as the new lecturer said he felt it was too difficult without having done Complex Analysis first. The lectures WERE recorded this year but I would still recommend going to all lectures. As far as content goes it was quite interesting stuff but it was a bit surprising that it didn't really follow on much from Vector Calc, and used a lot of Linear Algebra stuff, especially early in the semester, so it might be a good idea to revise some of that. The subject might frustrate those who enjoy more Pure maths type things as this subject is very much an applied maths/mathematical Physics subject. Overall though, a pretty good subject.

Very, very difficult. But extremely rewarding. If you make it through with an H1, you will have achieved a new level of mathematics, and life will never be the same. Take the challenge. Work hard. Become amazing. You can do it.

Very difficult and demanding subject. Perfect for students who love maths and like to study a lot. Lecturer makes it entertaining but doesn't record lectures. Good luck.
