Description:
This book provides an introduction to ordinary differential equations and dynamical systems. We start with some simple examples of explicitly solvable equations. Then we prove the fundamental results concerning the initial value problem: existence, uniqueness, extensibility, dependence on initial conditions. Furthermore we consider linear equations, the Floquet theorem, and the autonomous linear flow.

The notes describe the methodology called Variational Modelling, and focus on the application to the modelling of gradient-flow systems. I describe the methodology itself in great detail, and explain why this is a rational modelling route.
