Course Syllabus

Abstract

Differential equations on manifolds is a half-year course for the first-year students of master degree in mathematics. It is based on courses of Mathematical Analysis, Linear Algebra and Topology. The course is devoted to studying of classical and modern methods of qualitative theory of dynamical systems in manifolds and prepares students for understanding further courses Ergodic Theory, Theory of Local Bifurcations, Modern Theory of Dynamical Systems.
