How can I solve the two differential equations(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex]p(x)y''(x) + q(x)y'(x) + a \sin{y(x)} = 0 [/tex]

and

[tex]ay''(x) + p(x)y(x) + b \cos{y(x)} = 0 [/tex]

?

Are there any general method for solving an equation of the form

[tex]p(x)y''(x) + q(x)y'(x) + r(x)y(x) + a \sin{y(x)} = 0[/tex]

or the similar one with cos instead of sin?
