        Differential Equation and Numerical Methods Primer
The purpose of this document is to act as a stand-alone tutorial on the application of Euler’s Method to solve initial-value differential equation problems.  Secondarily, this document will review the scheme by which differential equations are classified and provide an introduction to more accurate (and more computationally-intensive) higher-order Runge-Kutta methods.
