Okay so this problem has been giving me nightmares ever since I laid eyes on it.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The problem: y'' - y = f(t), y(0) = 1, y'(0) = 0

f(t) = 1, 0 (less than equal to) t (less than) pi/2

f(t) = sin(t), t (greater than equal to) pi/2

Any help would be appreciated putting me in the right direction.

Thank you in advance.
