A Second Seminar on Second-Order Linear Differential Equations

Posted on September 26th, 2011 by

Second-Order Linear Differential Equations and Integrating Factors, Part 2

When: Wed, September 28, 11:30am – 12:20pm
Where: Olin Hall 320
Presenter: Ron Rietz

For first-order linear differential equations, a simple routine determines an integrating factor which leads to an integral expression giving all of the solutions of the equation. For second-order linear differential equations there doesn’t appear to be such a universally applicable process, but it turns out you can make a non-trivial amount of progress in this direction by adapting the idea of integrating factors to this family of equations.

Lunch will be served.
