Overview of Differential Equations (DE) Ordinary DE (ODE): One variable First-order ODE, Second-order ODE, … Constant coefficient ODE, Variable coefficient ODE Partial DE (PDE): Multi-variable DE: Equations that contains (partial) derivatives.

Examples ODE PDE First order: Second order: constant coefficients Second order: variable coefficients

Some First- and Second-order ODEs First order rate process (growth/decay) Second-order rate process Free falling of an object Classical harmonic oscillator One-dimensional Vibration of atomic bonds

Solving A DE Find the function(s) (of one or more variables) that satisfy the ODE/PDE. This step normally involves integration and/or series expansion. Initial or boundary conditions are usually required to specify the solution. Therefore, both equations and initial/boundary conditions are equally important in solving a specific practical problem.

General Solution The general solution of an inhomogeneous linear ODE is the sum of the general solution of the corresponding homogeneous equation and a particular solution of the inhomogeneous equation.

Example

Some Important Particular Solutions The determination of the coefficient(s) in y p is obtained by substituting it back to the inhomogeneous equation. However, if y p is already in y h then the general solution should be: where the choice of c(x): If the characteristic equation of the corresponding homogeneous equation has two (real or complex) roots, then c(x) =x, or else, c(x)=x 2. If r(x) is the sum of terms given in above table, the total y p (x) is the sum of respective y p of all terms. [This leads to a method of series expansion for general r(x) ]
