Solving Second-Order Differential Equations with Variable Coefficients
Wilmer, A., III; Costa, G. B.
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, v39 n2 p238-243 Mar 2008
A method is developed in which an analytical solution is obtained for certain classes of second-order differential equations with variable coefficients. By the use of transformations and by repeated iterated integration, a desired solution is obtained. This alternative method represents a different way to acquire a solution from classic power series techniques and other approaches. It is, at times, more involved than traditional methods.
