Abstract
The objective of this chapter is to review the basic ideas found in a first course in ordinary differential equations (ODEs). In doing so, we will concentrate primarily on those we deem most important in engineering applications. Because DEs are considered the most fundamental models that are used in a wide variety of physical phenomena, they play a central role in many of the following chapters of this text.
