Purpose: In this module we will study mathematical models which require the simultaneous use of two differential equations. To illustrate the issues that arise in working with such a "system of differential equations," we will consider several models of interaction between species.
Prerequisite: The user should be familiar with the basic properties of a single differential equation. See, for example, the module Introduction to differential equations.
