DSolve[{x'[t] == (\[Alpha] - (x[t] - 1)^2) x[t], x[0] == 0.004}, x[t],(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

t]

I get the following message:

Solve::tdep: The equations appear to involve the variables to be solved for in an essentially non-algebraic way. >>

DSolve::bvnul: For some branches of the general solution, the given boundary conditions lead to an empty solution. >>

What do I do?

I need to plot the solution.
