**Prem-exam:** The early bird exam will take place on Wednesday, May 23 2018,
at 14:00 at the department of mathematics. Those intending to participate should
register via e-mail and bring along notebooks with Maple.

Goodies:

•
**sylabus** - the most
important information about the course.

•
**Schedule of classes** - weekly
outlines of lectures and a special printable version of slides.
We **strongly recommend** that you print them and
take them with you to lectures.

• Information on
**midterms and project**.
**Sample midterm**.

• **Semestral project** for spring 2018
and **given problem**.

•
**Information on the final**.

•
**Sample final test** with Maple
workbook.
**Practice problems** for Maple.
The official
cheat sheet can be used during the final.

**Important information for the start:**
The classes take place at room 459, where every student has a terminal
connected to the kepler server. A basic manual is
here. Every student will be given an account
on the kepler server where you can play and do your semestral work.
Further details will be supplied during classes.

**Lecture notes** for the course:
Ordinary
Differential Equations and Numerical Mathematics.

**Some goodies:**

Table for practicing solution estimates
for special right hand-side (linear ODE).

Solved problems on ODE's with detailed solutions.

Practice problems on ODE's and brief
solutions.

**Maple:**

If you want to use the library NumericalMethods on your computer,
download the files

NumericalMethods.mla (library of procedures)

NumericalMethods.hdb (Help library)

and put them into the library folder of your Maple, the traditional place is
.../Maple/lib/.

Warning: I do not use the latest version, so I found out too late that starting from
version Maple 18, the Help database uses a new format. The library `.hdb`
has to be converted to the `.help` format.

If this gives you trouble, here are help pages for the procedures.
