 P: 206 Take for example a system $\frac{dx_i}{dt}$=(x_i,t,a,b,....) i-number of state equations. What would be the maximum number of parameters permitted for this system of non-linear differential equations? Is it finally determined by the solution space?Is there a criteria for number of parameters in a system of differential equations?
 Math Emeritus Sci Advisor Thanks PF Gold P: 38,900 Perhaps I am misundersanding your question. You can have any number of parameters in a differential equation.
