I heartily thankful to Coursera team who helped me lot to complete this course and last but not least I would like to say thanks to Prof. K.H.Kwon.I have learned lot thorough this course .
I have enjoyed taking this course. The topics have been divided very well in that they are not too long and hard just the right amount. The lecturer was delightful and easy to understand.
Is there any prerequisite for the course?
Yes. One must be familiar with the basic differential and integral calculus, which are the main contents of college level introductory Calculus course. Although the course does not require more than high school linear algebra, it will be very helpful if one has a little bit of knowledge on Linear Algebra such as the determinant of a square matrix, linear (in)dependence of vectors, and Cramer’s rule of solving a determined system of simultaneous linear algebraic equations.
"The beginner should not be discouraged if he finds that he does not have the prerequisites for reading the prerequisites.' from P. R. Halmos, I want to be a mathematician, Math. Assoc. America, 1985.
Q2. What are the main goals of the course?
The course is designed to introduce basic theory, techniques, and applications of differential equations to beginners in the field, who would like to continue their study in the subjects such as natural sciences, engineering, and economics etc. The course is emphasizing methods and techniques of solving certain differential equations.
