AMATH – Introduction to Differential Equations. David Harmsworth. Spring Course Notes by John Wainwright. AMATH is an advanced-level version of AMATH Compared to AMATH , AMATH offers a more theoretical treatment of differential equations and . Is this really as easy as people say? Is the difficulty prof dependant? How is the course otherwise (proof vs computation)?.
