## Homework Statement

##\frac{d^2y}{dx^2}=2xy\frac{dy}{dx}##

## Homework Equations

This is second order non-linear pde of the 'form' ## f(y'',y',y,x) ## .

I have read that there are 2 simplified versions of a second order non-linear pde that can be solved easily and these are 1) when there is no y term 2) when there is no x term

## The Attempt at a Solution

[/B]

The above does not fit into these two categories, and as such I think it has no general sort of procedure or way to solve, but it is possible for an integrating factor to come for mind for this particular one? (i just have no idea what this could be !)

Many thanks
