Ordinary di ff erential equations An ordinary di ff erential equation of order n is an equation of the form d n y dx n = f x , y , dy dx , . . . , d n - 1 y dx n - 1 . (1) A solution to this di ff erential equation is an n -times di ff erentiable function y ( x ) which satisfies (1). Example: Consider the di ff erential equation y - 2 y + y = 0 . What is the order of this equation? Are y 1 ( x ) = e x and y 2 ( x ) = x e x solutions of this di ff erential equation? Are y 1 ( x ) and y 2 ( x ) linearly independent?

Boundary conditions prescribe the values of linear combinations of y and its derivatives for two di ff erent values of x . In MATH 254 , you saw various methods to solve ordinary di ff erential equations. Recall that initial or boundary conditions should be imposed after the general solution of a di ff erential equation has been found.

Existence and uniqueness of solutions Equation (1) may be written as a first-order system dY dx = F ( x , Y ) (3) by setting Y = y , dy dx , d 2 y dx , · · · , d n - 1 y dx n - 1 T . Existence and uniqueness of solutions: if F in (3) is continuously di ff erentiable in the rectangle R = { ( x , Y ) , | x - x 0 | < a , || Y - Y 0 || < b , a , b > 0 } , then the initial value problem dY dx = F ( x , Y ) , Y ( x 0 ) = Y 0 , has a solution in a neighborhood of ( x 0 , Y 0 ). Moreover, this solution is unique.
