Hello, I was wondering if anyone could shed some light upon solving this:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

s(x)'' = (a b s(x)) / ||s(x)||^3

Where s is a n dimensional vector, || || is operation finding the magnitude and a and b are constants.

Is this solveable or will I have to use alternative numerical methods?
