Title: Section4.4 Q11
Post by: Zhihao Zuo on October 31, 2018, 05:04:27 PM
Find the solution of the given initial value problem:
y'''-y''+y'-y=sec(t), y(0)=2, y'(0)= -1, y''(0)=1

The solution manual writes "...with t(0)=0. Thus y(0) = c1+c2=2, y'(0)..." What does c1,c2 stand for?

What does c1,c2 stand for?
probably some constants.
