Category: Lisp Core - Solving equations Group: None Status: Open Resolution: None Priority: 5 Submitted By: Pedro Tytgat (pedrotytgat) Assigned to: Nobody/Anonymous (nobody) Summary: initial value problem gives rise to error Initial Comment: (%i1) 'diff(y,x)+2*y=3; (%o1) 'diff(y,x,1)+2*y=3 (%i2) ic1(%, x=0, y=1); Attempt to differentiate with respect to a number: 0 #0: ic1(soln='diff(y,x,1)+2*y = 3,xc=x = 0,yc=y = 1)(ode2.mac line 300) #1: ic1(?_l=['diff(y,x,1)+2*y = 3,x = 0,y = 1]) -- an error. Quitting. To debug this try debugmode(true); The problem does have a solution, though: (%i3) ode2(%o1, y, x); (%o3) y=%e^(-2*x)*((3*%e^(2*x))/2+%c) (%i4) subst(0, x, %); (%o4) y=%c+3/2 (%i5) subst(1, y, %); (%o5) 1=%c+3/2 (%i6) solve([%], [%c]); (%o6) [%c=-1/2] ---------------------------------------------------------------------- You can respond by visiting: https://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&atid=104933&aid=1567383&group_id=4933
