TYPE: If the unknown function depends on a single independent variable, then the equation is an ordinary differ- ential equation ; if the unknown function depends on more than one independent variable, then the equa- tion is a partial differential equa- tion . 3

SOLUTION: A solution of a differential equa- tion is a function deFned on some interval I (in the case of an or- dinary differential equation) or on some domain D in two or higher dimensional space (in the case of a partial differential equation) with the property that the equation re- duces to an identity when the func- tion is substituted into the equation. 6

Examples: 1. y ± =2 x + cos x y = x 2 + sin x , y = x 2 + sin x + C 2. y ± = ky y = e kt ,y = Ce 7
