See
me for details on any of the following ideas (or use your own judgment).

- Solve the damped and undamped pendulum equations. Create phase portraits for several parameter values in Matlab or Maple, and discuss your analysis in a two or three page document, containing a couple of sample phase portraits.
- Discuss travelling wave solutions for Fisher's equation. Use Matlab or Maple to plot some solutions, and discuss the analysis and results in a two or three page document.
- Use Matlab or Maple to find a
least squares fit to the data in /users/M300/meanincome03.txt using a
linear combination of exponential functions. Write a two or three
page document showing plots of the fits, and discussing the results.

- Use Matlab or Maple to solve a
problem involving a Dirichlet problem on a rectangular region.
Write a two or three page document...
