Contents Structure of solutions of nonhomogeneous equations Nonhomogeneous equations with constant coefficients Case I: g ( t ) = P n ( t ) = a 0 t n + a 1 t n - 1 + ··· + a n Case II: g ( t ) = P n ( t ) e αt Case III: g ( t ) = P n ( t ) e αt sin βt or P n ( t ) e αt cos βt

Nonhomogeneous equations We now return to the nonhomogeneous equation L [ y ] = y 00 + p ( t ) y 0 + q ( t ) y = g ( t ) , (1) where p, q , and g are continuous functions on an open interval I . The equation L [ y ] = y 00 + p ( t ) y 0 + q ( t ) y = 0 , (2) in which g ( t ) = 0 and p, q are the same as in equation (1), is called the homogeneous equation corresponding to equation (1).

Structure of solutions of nonhomogeneous equations The following two results describe the structure of solutions of the nonhomogeneous equation (1) and provide a basis for constructing its general solution. Theorem 1 If Y 1 and Y 2 are two solutions of the nonhomogeneous equation (1), then their difference Y 1 - Y 2 is a solution of the corresponding homogeneous equation (2). If, in addition, y 1 and y 2 are a fundamental set of solutions of equation (2), then Y 1 ( t ) - Y 2 ( t ) = c 1 y 1 ( t ) + c 2 y 2 ( t ) , (3) where c 1 and c 2 are certain constants.

Structure of solutions of nonhomogeneous equations Theorem 2 The general solution of the nonhomogeneous equation (1) can be written in the form y = φ ( t ) = c 1 y 1 ( t ) + c 2 y 2 ( t ) + Y ( t ) , (4) where y 1 and y 2 are a fundamental set of solutions of the corresponding homogeneous equation (2), c 1 and c 2 are arbitrary constants, and Y is some specific solution of the nonhomogeneous equation (1).

Three steps to solve a nonhomogeneous equation Theorem 2 states that to solve the nonhomogeneous equation (1), we must do three things: 1. Find the general solution c 1 y 1 ( t ) + c 2 y 2 ( t ) of the corresponding homogeneous equation (2). This solution is frequently called the complementary solution and may be denoted by y c ( t ) . 2. Find some specific solution Y ( t ) of the nonhomogeneous equation (1). Often this solution is referred to as a particular solution. 3. Add together the functions found in the two preceding steps.

Method of undetermined coefficients How to find y c ( t ) has been discussed. Next we focus on finding a particular solution Y ( t ) of the nonhomogeneous equation (1). There are two methods which are known as the method of undetermined coefficients and the method of variation of parameters, respectively.
