Differential Equations

• Definition: A differential equation is an equation thatcontains a function and one or more of its derivatives. Ifthe function has only one independent variable, then it isan ordinary differential equation. Otherwise, it is apartial differential equation.

• The following are examples of differential equations:

(a)∂2u∂x2 +

∂2u∂y2 = 0

(b) (x2 + y2)dx − 2xydy = 0

(c)d3xdy3

Solution of a Differential Equation

• Definition: A solution of a differential equation is afunction defined explicitly or implicitly by an equation thatsatisfies the given equation. The general solutionrepresents all the possible solutions of the given equation,while a particular solution is any one of the possiblesolutions of a given differential equation.

• Examples:

(a)dydx

= y , y = Cex where C is an arbitrary constant

(b)dydx

= 3ex , y = 3ex + C where C is an arbitrary constant

(c) y (3) − 3y ′ + 2y = 0, y = e−2x

(d)dydx

arbitrary constant.

Existence and Uniqueness Theorem

The existence of a particular solution satisfying initial conditionsof the form y(x0) = y0 is guaranteed by the following theorem:Existence and Uniqueness Theorem: Consider a first orderequation of the form

dydx

= f (x , y)

and let T be the rectangular region described by T = { (x , y) ∈R2 | |x − x0| ≤ a, |y − y0| ≤ b, a,b are positive constants }. If fand fy are continuous in T , then there exists a positive numberh and a function y = y(x) such that(a) y = y(x) is a solution of the given equation satisfying

y(x0) = y0; and(b) y = y(x) is unique on the interval |x − x0| ≤ h.
