riccati differential equations

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
how to find general solution of this question

du/dt=u^2+t^2

please say me

i work hard but i do nat know this form of riccati equation. i know when special solution is given however there is no special soltion such that u=u1(t) in this question.

When I make the usual substitution:

[tex]u=\frac{y'}{Ry}[/tex]

with [itex]R=-1[/itex] in your case (see info about Riccati equation),

I get:

[tex]y''+t^4y=0[/tex]

Suppose you had to come up with an analytic expression for the eqn. in y. What would you do?

why do you make u=y'/Ry and why you take R=-1

please tell me.

and i think, you have made an error process.

because you found an equation y''+yt^4=0

but i found y''+yt^2=0. and then i used second order linear differential equation thecniques.

After that i found y=C1e^it+C2e^(-it). i think this is not true.

Thank you for your interest my question.

riccati differential equations


Ok, my bad. It should be as you said and that's called the parabolic cylinder differential equation:

[tex]y''+x^2y=0[/tex]

But that's not solved using ordinary techniques. You could however, use power series and that's what I was referring to above. Say you get it in the form:

[tex]y(x)=\sum_{n=0}^{\infty}a_nx^n[/tex]

Then the solution to the original DE is:

[tex]u(x)=-\frac{\frac{d}{dx} \sum_{n=0}^{\infty}a_nx^n}{\sum_{n=0}^{\infty}a_nx^n}[/tex]

Nothing wrong with that is there?
