Ordinary Differential Equations

Santa Fe Institute via Complexity Explorer

Overview

This tutorial contains excerpts from Elizabeth Bradley's Nonlinear Dynamics course.  Note that Complexity Explorer tutorials are meant to introduce students to various important techniques and to provide illustrations of their application in complex systems.  A given tutorial is not meant to offer complete coverage of its topic or substitute for an entire course on that topic.   

This tutorial is designed for more advanced math students who have taken Calculus.

  • Juan completed this course, spending 4 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be medium.

    Santa Fe Institute and the Complexity Explorer program are the best in the complexity studies and nonlinear dynamics fields. Learning with them means more that just the knowledge you get.
