Solving ODEs and PDEs with Wolfram Language (Study Group Sessions)

Estimated Time: 5 h

Course Level: Intermediate


This Daily Study Group covers techniques for solving ordinary differential equations (ODEs) and partial differential equations (PDEs) using Wolfram Language. It introduces the built-in function DSolve for finding symbolic solutions to differential equations and the built-in function NDSolve, a general numerical differential equation solver. Topics covered include the numerical method of lines, the finite element method (FEM), the use and construction of meshes, boundary value problems and eigenvalue problems.

About Wolfram Daily Study Groups

Daily Study Groups are fun, directed, incremental learning resources. An instructor guides each session by sharing short lessons, polling the group to review key concepts, introducing practice problems and answering questions.
