Diff Equation

  1. May 22, 2007 #1
    I have this equation , I feel like the solution should be rather easy to have, but somehow it evades me, maybe I'm mistaken, what type is this equation?
    any explicit solutions?
    ay"+bxy'+cy*x^2=0
    a,b,c are just constant.

    As simple as that?
    For a second I thought It could only be solved by a Power Series or something like that, I think I'm becoming rusty!!

    Depends on what you mean by simple. That is, of course, a "Second-Order Ordinary Differential Equation" with variable coefficients. Power series is, in fact, the most common method of solving such an equation.
