Online Resources
Friday's lecture of Week 3
 There was an audiovisual problem in Friday's lecture, and the lecture was done on the whiteboard. Therefore the lecture recording for this lecture only has audio, and no visual.
Text/reference book for MATH1923
 The text Differential Equations with Boundary Value Problems by William Trench will serve very nicely as a reference book for the differential equations component of this course, and also for future mathematics courses in differential equations. This text is freely available from the American Institute of Mathematics online text initiative. Of course this text contains much more than we cover in lectures, and I encourage you to read some of the extra material to enhance and broaden your understanding of the topics!
