I was busy doodling and basically ended up constructing this differential equation:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

p'(t)=c(t)p(t)-c(t-T)p(t-T)

Obviously I've dealt with eq's like p'(t)=c(t)p(t) but I'm getting stuck because of the second term. Does this differential equation even have a closed form? Thanks.
