Abstract

Equations such as
$$\frac{{{d^3}}}{{dx}} = kx$$
(1)
$$\frac{{{d^3}}}{{dx}} - 2\frac{{dy}}{{dx}} + y = {e^x}$$
(2)
$$\frac{{{d^2}y}}{{d{x^2}}} = {\left[ {1 + {{\left( {\frac{{dy}}{{dx}}} \right)}^2}} \right]^{3/2}}$$
(3)
$$\frac{{{\partial ^2}V}}{{\partial {x^2}}} + \frac{{{\partial ^2}V}}{{\partial {y^2}}} = 0$$
(4)
$$\frac{{{\partial ^2}V}}{{\partial {t^2}}} = {c^2}\frac{{{\partial ^2}y}}{{\partial {x^2}}}$$
(5)
involving derivatives are called differential equations.
