17.05.2021 Following reference group discussions (see minutes to Meeting III on the "Reference group" page), I am willing to hold a 1.5 hour tutorial session at the regular lecture zoom link for people to ask what questions they have after they have had some time to study, on Sunday, the 30th of May at starting at 13.30. There will be no prepared remarks — this is only for people to ask questions. I will not be discussing the examination. This session will not be recorded.

25.02.2021 (1) There is no exercise sheet for this Thursday because we are slightly behind on lectures. (2) I intend to continue running online lectures, but if you believe that physical lectures (which not many attended when it happened) are preferable, and you intend to attend, please tell me or your reference group representatives in writing.
13.02.2021 The minutes to the reference group meeting on the 9th of February has been posted. See "Reference group" page.
10.02.2021 Pursuant to changes in University policy in the evening of the 10th of February, 2021, there will be no in-person lectures tomorrow — we will revert to Zoom lectures at the same Zoom link until further notice.

06.02.2021 (1) We are having in-person lectures on the 8th, see bulletin item 05.02.2021. (2) The date of the final examination has been announced — Firday, the 4th of June, 2021. (3) There is a reference group meeting on the 9th of February.
05.02.2021We are having in-person lectures on the 8th. These will be streamed online on Panopto at the link given in the "Lecture plan" page. You are reminded to come with masks on and to register on the day using the NTNU check-in system. Here are some reasons to stay at home: i) you are feeling unwell, ii) you are living with people who are feeling unwell, iii) you have recently arrived from overseas or from the South East of Norway, including: Nordre Follo, Oslo, Enebakk, Ås, Vestby, Nesodden, Indre Østfold, Moss, Frogn, or Våler.
31.01.2021(1) We shall attempt to have in-person lectures on the 8th. (2) Exercise classes remain online. (3) Mr. Davide Murari pointed out several typos and mistakes in exercise set II, a revised sheet has been uploaded.
28.01.2021 Following consultations, I will make preparations for in-person teaching to start on the 8th of February. A follow-up announcement will confirm this.
25.01.2021 (1) We will attempt to start in-person lectures on the 8th of February. It will not be over zoom, but essentially in real time (30-second lag). (2) I will be exploring different technological alternatives whilst on-line lectures continue. (3) We will have a zoom tutorial today. Details will be posted on Blackboard. (4) There are now three reference group representatives for TMA4165. See "Reference group" page. Do contact them about TMA4165 if there are issues you want to raise but not directly with me.
21.01.2021 (1) We will be having Zoom lectures until the 1st of February, earliest. In-person lectures, if they happen, will be recorded but will probably not be available in real time over Zoom. (2)There are now two reference group representatives for TMA4165. See "Reference group" page.
20.01.2021 The fourth lecture will be a Zoom lecture. From the first of February, I would like to resume digital teaching. This looks to be possible if class sizes are kept below 50 students. But whilst circa 30 people attend Zoom lectures, there are circa 90 registrants on Blackboard. It is therefore difficult for me to know how many intend to attend lectures if we revert to physical teaching. It would also be helpful to know how many prefer the current set-up. On the second point, may I refer you to the bulletin item of the 19.01.2021 — please elect a one or two more representatives.
19.01.2021 There is now one reference group representative for TMA4165. See "Reference group" page. It would be helpful to have one or two more. Please send me an email if you are happy to volunteer.
18.01.2021 Please email your questions pertaining to the exercises to Mr. Murari this week and he will answer as many of them as he can over the tutorial hours. We shall arrange a zoom tutorial next week if online teaching continues to be mandated.
16.01.2021 The third lecture will be a Zoom lecture.
14.01.2021 The first exercise set is up. See "Exercises" page.
12.01.2021 The Panopto link to the video recording for the first lecture is up. See "Lecture Plan" page.
09.01.2021 The first and second lectures of this module will be held over Zoom. Login will be posted in Blackboard (notwithstanding that I have said we shall make sparing use of Blackboard). Online lectures will be recorded — though chat/raised hands will not be so.
04.01.2021 Welcome to TMA4165 Differential Equations and Dynamical Systems. Information concerning TMA4165 will be posted on this site and we shall try to make very sparing use of Blackboard. Lectures start in Week 2. The first lecture will likely be an on-line lecture. This will be cofirmed and details will be posted here.
