Official Course Description:
Dynamical systems is an interesting subject which links pure mathematics with applications in physics, biology, electrical engineering, and others. The course will furnish a systematic introduction to ordinary differential equations in one and several variables, focusing more on qualitative aspects of solutions than on explicit solution formulas in those fifteen and a half cases where such exist. It will be shown how simple differential equations can lead to complicated and interesting, often ``chaotic'' dynamical behavior, and that such arise naturally in the ``real world''. We will also discuss time-discrete dynamical systems (iteration theory) with its relations and differences to differential equations.
