Code Completion Credits Range
01GTDR Z 2 0+2
Lecturer:
Tutor:
Michal Beneš (guarantor)
Supervisor:
Department of Mathematics
Synopsis:

The seminar consists of the qualitative theory of ODEs dealing with the geometric and topological properties of the solution. In this context, we mention suitably formulated basic results of the existence and uniqueness, continuous dependence on parameters and initial conditions. Main part is devoted to the autonomous systems.

Requirements:

Basic course of Calculus, Linear Algebra and Ordinary Differential Equations (in the extent of the courses 01MA1, 01MAA2-4, 01LA1, 01LAA2, 01DIFR held at the FNSPE CTU in Prague).

Syllabus of lectures:

1. Basic theorem on the local existence and uniqueness of the solution

2. Theorem of continuous dependence on parameters

3. Differentiability with respect to parameters

4. Continuous dependence on initial conditions, and dfferentiability with respect to initial conditions

5. Basics of the theory of autonomous systems

6. Analysis of solution of autonomous systems (special solutions, phase space)

7. Exponentials of operators

8. Systems 2 x 2

9. Lyapunov stability

10. Limit cycles

11. Poincaré map

12. First integrals and integral manifolds
