Participation: Attendence in classes is mandatory. Students are expected to read the materials before and/or after the classes. It is suggested that you start to work on homework problems right after they are assigned.



Main reference book: Ordinary differential equations with applications, Carmen Chicone, 2nd edition, Springer. (Homework will mainly come from this book.)

 

Materials:  In this semester, we will develop the qualitative theory for systems of nonlinear ordinary differential equations. After a brief review of the material covered in Math 6307, the main subjects include invariant manifold theory, bifurcation theory, normal forms, periodic orbits and homoclinic orbits. The topics are among
