    Dif. between analytical solution, mathematical derivation and analytical formulation?

    Hi, I'm doing an assignment and I just want to know the difference between an analytical solution, a mathematical derivation and an analytical formulation.

    Thanks

    An analytical solution is a closed form exact solution expressed in terms of known operations and functions.

    A mathematical derivation is a mathematical argument proceeding from the known to a result.

    An analytic formulation is (I presume) a problem translated into mathematical language.
