2014 spring – MAT 2680 Differential Equations – Reitz

A differential equation is an equation that relates a function to one or more of its derivatives. – The above rather boring description does little to convey just how fundamental, widespread, and amazingly effective differential equations are in describing the world around us. – Examples: Anything in motion. Also, many things that are not in motion. Also, many additional things to which the word “motion” does not really apply. – Further examples: spaceships in orbit, populations growing and shrinking, a cup of coffee slowly cooling, springs bouncing, financial markets rising and falling, electrical current flowing through a circuit, ocean waves, sound waves, light waves, vibrations in musical instruments and airplane wings and suspension bridges, – More examples: Pretty much everything. Topics include methods of solving ordinary differential equations and applications to various problems.

My Projects

A Remote Monitoring Platform

A Remote Monitoring Platform

The ability to obtain data remotely is convenient and cost effective. An unmanned quadrotor helicopter would be outfitted with monitoring devices. These devices would have the capabilities of locating and recording the status of an object (human or animal). This data would then be made available to a central command and control location, where analysis of the data would be done.
