Hello there,
I have no idea how to solve the differential equation y''(x) + A sin(y(x))  B = 0 , where A and B are positive real numbers. I do also have initial conditions: y(0) = 0 and y'(0) = 0. I would be grateful for any help.

y''+A sin(y)B=0
y''y'+A sin(y)y'B y'=0 y'²/2A cos(y)B y =C y'²=2A cos(y)+2B y +2C dy/dx =y' = (+or)sqrt(2A cos(y)+2B y+2C) dx=(+or) dy/sqrt(2A cos(y)+2B y+2C) x =(+or) integal (dy/sqrt(2A cos(y)+2B y+2C)) +c cannot be expressed with a finit number of usual functions;
