Computer-aid for study of differential and difference equations


Seventh Colloquium on the Qualitative Theory of Differential Equations
(Szeged, Hungary, July 14-18, 2003).

Date: July 18 (Friday) 2003, 14.00 – 18.00

Place: Computer room (air-conditioned!) at Dept. Medical Informatics
Conditions: Some practice with computers is required. The capacity of the computer room is restricted.
Maximal number if participant is 20 and 16
of them can work individually.

During the microcourse the participants will learn the very basic tools of visualization and
investigation of ordinary differential and difference equations in Mathematica with the help of
well-prepared modeling schemes.
Some topics concerned:

Elements of computer visualization
Elementary steps of the investigation of ODE’s: vectorfields, equilibria, solution, plotting solutions
and trajectories, animations

Advanced methods: phasemap experiments, Liapunov method
The participants will receive a CD-ROM that contains the projects used on this course and the complete
system of handouts and projects of the intensive courses Computer-aided mathematical modeling (for Ph.D.
students at
University of Szeged) and Computer Algebra I-II (for computational engineering students at
 Technische Fachhochschule
