It is good for you to solve differential equations! Already Newton knew that.

The main focus of this course is to study systems of ordinary differential equations (ODEs). Many classical second order one-dimensional ODEs can be written in this form. This approach not only gives a systematic way to solve ODEs, but also helps to clarify qualitative properties. Important applications are given in various fields such as mechanics, electro-science, population dynamics, and meteorology.

Both linear systems and non-linear systems are studied, in particular two-dimensional systems.


Roughly 15 minutes with a bike from the city centre, you will find Linnaeus University’s campus. It is like a small society with the university, student accommodation, and student life. Here you become part of a creative knowledge environment.

What will you come across on an excursion in Växjö – the city of contrasts? You will find good restaurants, a celebrated hockey team, and cozy cafés where you can enjoy a latte with lingonberry flavour. In Växjö, beautiful nature is always just around the corner; the city is surrounded by lakes and forests. Students like the combination of the city centre and the active student life on campus. Your dream of the future starts here!
