I have been studying LaPlace Transforms and I have learned how they are used to solve DE's with discontinuous driving functions, which is certainly interesting but I was wondering is it possible to solve the same DE's using other methods such as Undetermined Coefficients or Variation of Parameters(and how would it be done)?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have an idea of how you might be able to so, solving each continuous DE separably then adjusting the constants so the graphs meet consecutively but I don't know if this is correct.
