MATH 650 Nonlinear Dynamical Systems

MATH 650.  Nonlinear Dynamical Systems.  3 Credits.   N   

This course provides an introduction to nonlinear ordinary differential equations and dynamical systems theory with an emphasis on applications. Topics covered include the existence and uniqueness of solutions to initial value problems, as well as the qualitative behavior of solutions, including existence of equilibria, periodic and connecting orbits and their stability. Additional topics include an introduction to bifurcation theory and chaos. Prerequisite: MATH 127 or MATH 147, and MATH 220 or MATH 221 or MATH 320, and MATH 290 or MATH 291.

Bachelor of Science in Mathematics

The degree of Bachelor of Science in Mathematics offers more extensive training in mathematics and its applications than is possible in the B.A. curriculum. The requirements for the B.S. in Mathematics allow a great deal of flexibility in choice of courses and concentrations. Students should plan their programs carefully to meet individual interests and goals, and carefully check the prerequisites for all courses in their programs.

Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics

The degree of Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics offers in depth training in mathematics. A B.A. degree in mathematics at KU allows you to focus on the mathematics that is most relevant and interesting to you. A total of 120 hours is required to graduate with a B.A. in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. The requirements for all students earning a B.A. in the College include the KU Core Curriculum , a laboratory or field experience, and proficiency in a language other than English.

Department of Mathematics

Why study mathematics? Because mathematics is a framework upon which humanity builds an understanding of the world. The mission of the Department of Mathematics is to create and teach mathematics, and to develop in all students the capacity to understand, discover, enjoy, and use mathematics. This is a wide-ranging enterprise that involves: Enabling students to experience the value and power of mathematical reasoning; Providing for the specific mathematical needs of users of mathematics, e.g., in engineering, computer science, economics, physics, finance, education and other physical and social sciences; Providing statewide leadership in the mathematics education of all Kansans from K-12 through graduate school; Developing interdisciplinary research with other units which make extensive use of mathematics; Fostering a climate conductive to active faculty research and interaction with other departments. The Mathematics Department offers two undergraduate degrees, a B.A. in Mathematics and a B.S. in Mathematics, as well as an Undergraduate Certificate in Actuarial Science. The B.A. has fewer mathematics course requirements and more general education requirements. The B.S. requires more mathematics courses, an applied mathematics concentration, and fewer general education courses. Students who wish to teach mathematics in high school should pursue a B.A. or B.S. in mathematics while participating in the UKanTeach program. The mathematics department offers two graduate degrees, an M.A. and a Ph.D., as well as a Certificate in Applied Mathematics.
