Numerical Solution to Complex DiffEQ?

  1. Feb 4, 2015 #1
    I've been trying to figure out a way to get an approximation to a complex DiffEQ.
    dx/dt = c1 / (c2 + c3*x*t)
    Does anyone have any input on wether this problem can be approximated?
    Thank you.

    Do you really mean complex, or simply "complicated?"

    Do you know c1, c2, c3 and x(0)?

    If what you want is a numerical solution, as your title indicates, then it is trivial. What software to you have access to and know how to use (Matlab, Mathematica, C compiler, ...) ?

    Oh I'm sorry for leaving that out. I do know the values of c1,c2,c3. These are a string of constants I thought I would leave out for simplicity.

    The equation again is, dx/dt = c1 / (c2 + c3*x(t)*t) initial value is x(0) = 0.

    I have access to Matlab, Mathematica and a C compiler. My preference is Matlab, C, then Mathematica.

    Thank you
