# Math 431 - Differential Equations II - Summer 1999

Section 30638 - MTWRF 1:30-3:00 - Ayres 118

### Resources:

• Text: Elementary Differential Equations and Boundary Value Problems, 6th Edition, by W.E. Boyce and R.C. DiPrima, 1997.
• Class Outline. Contains topics covered, important concepts and homework problems. Updated regularly.
• Math Tutorial Center. Get help on any mathematical question, especially in the 100-200 level material. Open Tues 10:30-2:00, Wed 9:00-12:30 and Thursday 9:30-1:00.
dfld.m MATLAB file to plot a direction field. I put comments in the file, so if you know MATLAB you should be able to use it.
