This subject covers various methods of solving systems of ordinary differential equations and partial differential equations. Special functions are studied in the framework of Sturm-Liouville theory, leading naturally into Fourier series and transforms. Laplace transforms are studied in greater depth than in previous subjects. All these methods are applied to solving partial differential equations, providing a capstone for mathematics majors.
