Help solving a Differential equation

  1. Sep 30, 2007 #1
    k is an integer greater than 1.
    [tex]y'=y^{\frac{-1}{k}}[/tex]
    solving this ode in matlab gives me this
    [tex](\frac{t*k+t+C1*k}{k})^{\frac{k}{1+k}}[/tex] which is correct since the further part of the problem proving a certain limit involving y follows from using the above matlab sol.

    I am interested in solving this ode by hand.

    by hand I am getting [tex]y^{\frac{k+1}{k}}=kt[/tex]

    I have a problem in heat equation. Can ADI Methods be used in Cylindrical coordinate system?
    Any help should be appreciated.
