Starting soon on POK a new MOOC about Mathematics devoted to second-order linear differential equations. The course, titled “Equazioni differenziali lineari del secondo ordine” is in Italian.
It is devoted to students in the Bachelor of Science and it can be especially useful in universitary courses such as Mathematical Analysis or Differential Equations. The course gives – using a simple but rigorous approach – an introduction to second order linear differential equations both in the homogeneous and in the inhomogeneous case, and explains thier solution tecniques when the coefficients are constant. In addition, the main physical applications of such equations are also presented: oscillations (both free and dumped) and resonance.
