Logistic Equation

Watched lecture 5 in the MIT 18.03 series


In this lecture differential equations were discussed of type $\frac{dy}{dx}=f(y)$, i.e. with no independent variable in the RHS of the equation, aka autonomous differential equations. He showed how to get qualitative information about the solution without actually solving the Differential Equation. The logistic equation ( remember MST121? ) was discussed and used as a model in several problems. Without actually solving the equation much could be said about the solutions.

I read Lesson 1 of MST209/OpenLearn. The title is 'First Order Differential Equations' and contains procedures for Euler's Method, Direct Integration, Separation of variables and the Integrating Factor method. The lesson also contains several exercises with answers. All very much like a normal Open University lesson.

  1. logistic equation is very important part. thanks for this information.

Mathematics: is it the fabric of MEST?
This is my voyage
My continuous mission
To uncover hidden structures
To create new theorems and proofs
To boldly go where no man has gone before




(Raumpatrouille – Die phantastischen Abenteuer des Raumschiffes Orion, colloquially aka Raumpatrouille Orion was the first German science fiction television series. Its seven episodes were broadcast by ARD beginning September 17, 1966. The series has since acquired cult status in Germany. Broadcast six years before Star Trek first aired in West Germany (in 1972), it became a huge success.)
