Classification Definitions Any function φ defined on some interval I , which when substituted into a differential equation reduces the equation to an identity Is said to be a solution of the equation on the interval. A solution in which the dependent variable is expressed solely in terms of the independent variable is said to be an explicit solution. An explicit solution of a differential equation that is identically zero on an interval I is said to be a trivial solution . A relation G(t,y)=0 is said to be an implicit solution of ODE on an interval I provided there exists at least one function that satisfies the relation as well as the differential equation on I . Examples 4 16 t y = is an explicit solution of the equation 1/ 2 dy ty dt = on the interval ( , ) I = -∞ ∞ 2 2 4 0 t y + - = is an implicit solution of the equation dy t dt y =- on ( 2,2) I = -

A family of all possible solutions is said to be the general solution of the equation. Solution (integral) curves General solution / 2 900 t p Ce = + C is an arbitrary constant (parameter) of the solution A particular solution of the equation is free of arbitrary parameters (we need to define a value of C ) / 2 900 200 t p e = - If p (0) = p 0 = 700, then C = - 200 and A differential equation together with an initial condition form an initial value problem 0 0.5 450, (0) dp p dt p p = - = The value of C can be found from the initial condition: p (0) = p 0
