i will express some function y as follows as its ordinary derivative(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

dy/dt=y

(can i say like this-the change in y value with respect to change in t value at the point t will be equal to the y value at t)

Can somebody explain a partial derivative like the above statement

What is so special in a partial differential equation that it requires so many methods as follows. What is the difficulty that makes the ode and pde different in their solution
