188 Economic Dynamics Mathematica DSolve[{x’[t]==f[x[t],y[t],t],y’[t]==g[x[t],y[t],t], x(0)==x0,y(0)==y0},{x[t],y[t]},t] Maple dsolve(({diff(x(t),t)=f(x(t),y(t),t),diff(y(t),t) =g(x(t),y(t),t), x(0)=x0,y(0)=y0},{x(t),y(t)}); It is often easier to deFne the equations, variables and initial conditions Frst. Not only is it easier to see, but much easier in correcting any mistakes. ±or instance in Mathematica deFne eq:={x’[t]==f[x[t],y[t],t],y’[t]==g[x[t],y[t],t], x[0]==x0,y[0]==y0} var:={x[t],y[t]} and then solve using DSolve[eq,var,t] In Maple deFne: eq:=diff(x(t),t)=f(x(t),y(t),t),diff(y(t),t)=
