- I really love Laplace transformations. I was able to solve first and second order differential equations easily while having fun. I’m not so sure why but it just came to me naturally.
Main Question or Discussion Point
What is yours?
Isn't that what this forum is for?The best is to hand it to someone else to solve. :-)
A related technique is looking it up in a book. This was a go-to method in graduate school many years ago - how else would I know the solution was a parabolic cylinder function, or some other uncommon beast?
Assume a solution of the form...What is the most useful method to solve differential equations?
In other words: know the answer. At least in rough outline, then you can hammer the rough form into an exact fit.Assume a solution of the form...
