Student[ODEs][Solve]

 HighOrder
 Solve a high order ODE

 Calling Sequence HighOrder(ODE, y(x))

Parameters

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

Description

 • The HighOrder(ODE, y(x)) command finds the solution of a high order ODE, i.e. where the order is greater than 2.
 • Use the option output=steps to make this command return an annotated step-by-step solution.  Further control over the format and display of the step-by-step solution is available using the options described in Student:-Basics:-OutputStepsRecord.  The options supported by that command can be passed to this one.
