Background and Goals: The sequence 156-255-256 is an honors calculus sequence intended for engineering and science majors who scored 4 or 5 on the AB or BC Advanced Placement calculus exam. Applications will be stressed, but some theory will also be included. Content: Topics include linear algebra, matrices, systems of differential equations, initial and boundary value problems, qualitative theory of dynamical systems (e.g. equilibria, phase space, stability, bifurcations), nonlinear equations, numerical methods. MAPLE will be used throughout. Alternatives: Math 216 (Intro. To Differential Equations) or Math 286 (Honors Differential Subsequent Courses: Many upper-level courses
