From the Preface:
What follows are my lecture notes for a first course in differential equations, taught at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. Included in these notes are links to short tutorial videos posted on YouTube. 

Much of the material of Chapters 2-6 and 8 has been adapted from the widely used textbook "Elementary differential equations and boundary value problems" by Boyce & DiPrima (John Wiley & Sons, Inc., Seventh Edition, ○c 2001). Many of the examples presented in these notes may be found in this book. The material of Chapter 7 is adapted from the textbook "Nonlinear dynamics and chaos" by Steven H. Strogatz (Perseus Publishing, (c) 1994).
