Differential Equations

First Order Differential Equations

Although it implements only a relatively small number of commands related to this topic, MATLAB’s treatment of differential equations is nevertheless very efficient. We shall see how we can use these commands to solve each type of differential equation algebraically. Numerical methods for the approximate solution of equations and systems of equations are also implemented.

The basic command used to solve differential equations is dsolve. This command finds symbolic solutions of ordinary differential equations and systems of ordinary differential equations. The equations are specified ...
