My thought was PID loops, but I'm not sure if they use differential equations? I really wanted to use them though because I have used them before in a DIY project, although they use integrals and derivatives I'm not sure there is a differential equation.

My second possibility was using a low or high pass filter, or even a khalmann filter. In regards to combining IMU data(gyro and accelerometer) to form angle measurments. But I don't quite remember a solid differential equation from there, just a lot of usage of integrals and derivatives.

I need at least one differential equation used, preferably some of the more complex ones, like Laplace transforms or the delta functions, or something like Linear differential equations. I'm basically not sure weather PID loops cut the criteria. The System I planned on using for the PID loop was a DC motor controlling a simple raft with another object on it, this DC motor controlled the placement of the raft using a PID loop to regulate the current or force used to push this raft

Thank you in advance,
