Course objectives (in Czech)
Základy teorie obyčejných diferenciálních rovnic.
  • 1. Introduction and basic methods (simple examples, method of separation of variables, homogeneous equations).
    2. Systems of linear first-order equations (existence and uniqueness of solutions, properties of solutions, systems with constant coefficients, variation of constants, linear differential equation of n-th order).
    3. Systems of differential equations (existence of solutions, Picard's sequence, Paeno existence theorem, Gronwall's lemma, uniqueness of initial value problem, global uniqueness of solution).
    4. Dependence of solutions on initial conditions and parameters.
    5. Stability (the notion of stability, Lyapunov, uniform, asymptotic and exponential stability, stability of linear differential systems, stability of perturbed systems).
    6. Autonomous systems (trajectories, phase space, singular point, cycle, critical points of linear and nonlinear system).
    7. Boundary value problems (formulation, homogeneous and nonhomogeneous boundary value problems, Green function, Sturm-Liouville problem).
