Applied Mathematics E2101y Introduction to Applied Mathematics Problem Set #3, due Tuesday, 24 February 2009 Chapter 2: Supplementary Problem Observe that the ODE dy dx = 1 y - x is nonlinear in y ( x ), not separable, not homogeneous, and not of a recognizably easy form to solve for y ( x ). However, the equation dx dy = y - x , which is obtained by taking the reciprocal of the original, is a linear ODE for x ( y ), with the functional relation inverted. Solve for an implicitly defined algebraic relationship between the variables
