Differential Equations in Action

Free Course
8 weeks duration

Write Python code to find numerical solutions to systems of differential equations. The models you create will fight wildfires, bring spaceships back to earth, and more!

In the course Differential Equations in Action on Udacity, students will explore various real-world applications of differential equations. The course begins with an introduction to the Forward Euler Method, followed by a lesson on comparing solvers using Heun's Method. The Symplectic Euler Method is then introduced, and students will learn about analyzing the spread of diseases. The course also covers implicit methods and stiffness, as well as stability, sensitivity, and optimization. Antilock Brake Systems are discussed in relation to friction, equilibria, and control theory. The path of a forest fire is examined using partial differential equations and heat conduction. Finally, the course concludes with advanced applications of numerical methods, including chaos, software, and predictive capability.
