Credit points: 15

Subject outline

This subject aims to show how geometric symmetry of the solutions of differential equations can be used to find those solutions using integrating factors. These integrating factors exist for all ordinary differential equations, not just the ones you learnt about in first year Mathematics. The mathematics developed includes: calculus on manifolds, one-parameter Lie groups and flows, exterior calculus and of course lots of differential equation theory. Computer algebra is used, though no prior knowledge is required.
