Importance of Applying Differential Equations in Maritime Affairs – Practical Examples

Maritime affairs can be defined as an activity that involves all actions which are directly or indirectly related to the sea. It does not include only sailing or underway actions and navigation but it brings together terms from vessels, employees and companies over shipbuilding to trade, transport and management. Mathematics, as one of the oldest sciences helps us with many calculations in close relation to maritime affairs. Ship stability, swinging on the waves, dynamics of the vessel in towage and navigation are just some of the problems that can be solved by using mathematics. Objective of this work is to explain and show the use of differential equations in practical examples in maritime affairs. By using differential equations a lot of problems connected with navigation and motion of vessels are solved.
