General Solution from Particular Solution

  1. Jan 23, 2016 #1
    Just a question about the theory of solutions to differential equations?

    Given a second order differential equation and two particular solutions y1 and y2, what is the best way to find the general solution?

    i.e variation of parameters or something else

    Or perhaps to use one solution and contain all constants using Abel's theorem?
