Help in Mathematica code for solutions expansion of differential equations

  1. Apr 25, 2012 #1
    I need to NDsolve four differential equations.
    But I find my code does not work. Who can give me some suggestions? Thanks!

    or here

    As suggested, simplify your notebook as much as possible and describe exactly what the problem is with the result you are getting. Look at other postings there to see how people include a small notebook with their question, demonstrate their problem and ask their questions. Look at the posts that get answers for good examples.

    The posts that do not get good answers say "Something is wrong using NDSolve. what do I do?"

    Also, if you need to cut and paste your code, first convert it to Raw input form: highlight it, then select Cell/Convert To/Raw Input form. Then cut and paste it like I do below. Then wrap it in the code blocks:

    Code (Text):

    mysol = NDSolve[{Derivative[1][y][x] +
          (2*x + 1)*y[x] == 0, y[0] == 1}, y, {x, 0, 5}]
    myPlot = Plot[y[x] /. mysol, {x, 0, 5}]
