Some Elements about Ordinary Differential Equations

  • Eric Delabaere
Part of the Lecture Notes in Mathematics book series (LNM, volume 2155)


This chapter is merely devoted to recalling usual notation and elementary results on ordinary differential equations in the complex domain. We give the fundamental existence theorem for Cauchy problems (Sect. 1.1). We detail the main differences between solutions of linear versus nonlinear ODEs, when the question of their analytic continuation is considered (Sect. 1.2). Finally we provide a short introduction to Painlevé equations (Sect. 1.3).
