 ByUndeterminedCoefficients
 Solve a linear ODE by the method of undetermined coefficients

 Calling Sequence ByUndeterminedCoefficients(ODESYS, y(x))

Parameters

 ODE - equation; a linear ordinary differential equation y - name; the dependent variable x - name; the independent variable

Description

 • The ByUndeterminedCoefficients(ODE, y(x)) command finds the solution of a linear ODE by the method of undetermined coefficients.
