  1. Jan 28, 2010 #1
    How can the Riccati equation of the form
    \frac{dy(x)}{dx}=\cos \omega x +\alpha y(x) -4\cos \omega x y^{2}(x)
    be solved? I have tried using Mathematica 5 and I can't solve it! PLEASE HELP

    Don't forget the tex tags around your equation. You can always preview your post:

    [tex]\frac{dy(x)}{dx}=\cos \omega x +\alpha y(x) -4\cos \omega x y^{2}(x)[/tex]
