2nd order linear differential equation without source (homogeneous linear differential equation) can be always written as y'' + P(x)y' + Q(x)y = 0 where ' means differentiation. Full solution is obtained by solving this equation with initial conditions (equation describes evolution of...
I forgot the reason why 2nd order differential equation has two independent solutions. (Here, source term is zero) Why 3 or 4 independent solutions are not possible?
Please give me clear answer.
