Let us now return to studying non homogeneous equations, but first we need to recall a few things we learned in section 4.1: the general solution y c of the related homogeneous ODE 0 ) ( c y L is called the complementary solution . Any function y p that is free of arbitrary parameters and satisfies the nonhomogeneous equation ) ( ) ( x g y L p is called a particular solution . The general solution of the nonhomogeneous equation is
