Chapter 8 Introduction to Differential Equations

This chapter is designed to provide a brief classification of common or standard forms of elementary differential equations for the purpose of introducing the subject. In general, differential equations can be classified according to a few major categories. These include linear differential equations, non-linear differential equations, and systems of both linear and non-linear equations. Linear differential equations are usually easier to solve using general methods. Non-linear differential equations are more difficult to solve and often involve approximations and numerical methods. Differential equations are also classified according to the highest order of the derivative in the equation, such ...
