Abstract

This paper investigates how differential equations models have been used to study works in literature, poetry and film. We present applications to works by William Shakespeare, Francis Petrarch, Ray Bradbury, Herman Melville, Ridley Scott and others, as well as applications to Greek mythology and the Bible. This paper gives a range of useful examples for teaching, and we discuss how these models have been used in the classroom.
