The purpose of this chapter is to present several methods to solve differential equations, this chapter begins with a motivation based on physical phenomena that can be represented with differential equations, after that we introduce definitions and methods for first order and second order linear differential equations, various exercises are given to the reader to better illustrate the contents of this chapter.
