Can some one teach me Differential Equations?

    I would like to learn this. Can someone teach me? The things like δy22x and solving for x and y. :rolleyes:

    There are thick books on the subject.

    And they cover only introductory material...

    "Introductory Differential Equations" would be at least a semester course. "Differential equations" in general should require several courses. I don't know what you mean by " The things like δy2/δ2x and solving for x and y." Did you mean [itex]d^2y/dx^2[/itex] or [itex]\partial^2y/\partial x^2[/itex]? Those are from Calculus and you should have completed Calculus before you attempt Differential Equations. Have you taken Calculus?

    Yes, someone can teach you DEs, but not here at PF. This is not a tutoring service.

    aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!!! Did you learn it?

    Yes, and no, but I can integrate and differentiate.
    I meant [itex]d^2y/dx^2[/itex]

    I barely licked the surface, so long ago I can safely state I don't remember anything.

    But asking people to TEACH you something like that is a horribly wrong approach. Nobody here is going to spend their time teaching you. But if you start on your own, they will be able to help if you get stuck.

    Differential equations is probably the most studied area of applied mathematics (and maybe pure mathematics), one can spend an entire life time studying differential equations.

    Oh! Really? oops... How about "Differential Equations for Dummies"?

    oh dear...:zzz: I might just see how it works or maybe study it for several weeks.
