with Constant Coefficients A differential equation of the form
ay'+by’+cy =0 can always be solved in terms of elementary functions of catculus. If the coefﬁcients are not constant they are
usually much more difﬁcult. Slide 3 Error! Objects cannot be created from editing ﬁeld Possibilities for y: e‘, e", ce‘. ce", A linear
