Solving Ordinary Differential Equations: Summary

The answers to the ConcepTests are given below and will open in a separate window. 
Key points from this module:
  • Sets of ordinary differential equations with initial values are readily solved numerically and many software packages are available to solve these equations.
From studying this module, you should now be able to:
  • Solve sets of initial-value, ordinary differential equations numerically using software such as Polymath, Mathcad, MATLAB, Python, or Mathematica.
