Calc III Lab #5: Introduction

Objectives of the lab

The objective of this lab is threefold.
  1. Gain intuition about differential equations and their solutions.
  2. Experiment with software to help us visualize the geometry of differential equations.
  3. Gain experience with a new format of lab worksheets: an on-line hypertext document.

Getting Started with DsTool

The computer software we will use today and in the next few weeks is a dynamical systems toolkit know as DsTool. This software will help you to get acquainted with the geometry of dynamical systems.

DsTool has an on-line help facility to help you in doing the exercises below.
