The Wolfram Language:
Solving ODEs and DAEs
with NDSolve

1 Certification
Estimated Time: 2hr
Course Level: Intermediate
Requirements: This course requires basic working knowledge of the Wolfram Language and of differential equations.
Certification Levels: Course completion

This course covers techniques for solving ordinary differential equations (ODEs) and differential-algebraic equations (DAEs) using the Wolfram Language. It introduces the built-in Wolfram Language function DSolve for finding symbolic solutions to differential equations and the built-in function NDSolve, a general numerical differential equation solver. Related functions and the options associated with them are demonstrated with examples.

Featured Products & Technologies: Wolfram Language, Mathematica
