Differential equations

Differential equations are those that have terms that involve the rates of change of variates as well as the variates themselves. They arise naturally in a number of fields, notably dynamics. When the changes are with respect to one dependent variable, most often the systems are called ordinary differential equations. If more than a single dependent variable is involved, then they are termed partial differential equations.

Julia has a number of packages that aid the calculation of differentials of functions and to solve systems of differential equations. We will look at a few aspects of these in the next section.
