Math 315 Computer Tools

There are some Java Applets that allow interactive work with differential equations at the textbook website. For example, the applet program "DFIELD" plots direction fields and selected solution curves.

The computer tools Maple and Matlab are available online from the Math Department MyMath Math Portal; after login, use "Goto" to follow the "Software" link and select Matlab or Maple. Online information about Matlab is given at the Matlab information website. Some tutorial information about Maple is given at this Maple tutorial website, with more details given at this second Maple tutorial website. Here are some Maple and Matlab example commands for working with differential equations.
