1. ## ODE help

Hi..i got this equation (2xy^2 - x)dx + (x^2y - y)dy=0 ;I know its not exact as i ve partially differentiated it to get M=4xy(wrt y) and N= 2xy(wrt x) After multipying it by h(y)..i got h= i/sqrt(2y^2-1)..after that i cant prove that its exact..can someone please give me a lead on this..

2. ## correction

the part is h=1/sqrt(2y^2-1) sorry..

Factorise it as $0 = (2xy^2 - x)dx + (x^2y - y)dy = x(2y^2 - 1)dx + y(x^2 - 1)dy$, and it separates!

$\int\frac{x}{x^2-1}dx + \int\frac{y}{2y^2-1}dy = 0$.

$\int\frac{x}{x^2-1}dx + \int\frac{y}{2y^2-1}dy = 0$.
And it separated here too.

I try to solve this differential equation as:
$
P(x,y)=2 x y^{2} \;\;\;; \; Q(x,y)= x^{2 y} -y
$

You have to find $\mu=\mu(z)$ for z = z(x,y) and solve this DE:
$
\frac{\mu'(z)}{\mu(z)} = \frac{\frac{\partial{P}}{\partial{y}}-\frac{\partial{Q}}{\partial{x}}}{\frac{\partial{z} }{\partial{x}}\; Q - \frac{\partial{z}}{\partial{y}}\; P}
$

This DE can be solved only by numerical approach; it is very difficult solve because when you differentiate Q you get something ugly to calculate. Note:
if $\frac{\partial{P}}{\partial{y}} = \frac{\partial{Q}}{\partial{x}}$ would be exact and it would be very simple to solve. How to manipulate this equation they would be exact- insert:
$
\frac{\partial{(\mu P)}}{\partial{y}}=\frac{\partial{(\mu Q)}}{x}
$

Why would you do this when it's so clearly seperable?

Dear mr fantastic.

Only problem is that this is differential equation and not integral equation.
When you have problem like
$\frac{dy(x)}{y(x)} = -{\omega}^2\; x$
you integrate in both sides. When you can do this is only when differential equation is linear and homogen that is when is satisfy $y(kx,ky)=ky(x,y)$
Most important is when you calculate something you have to have very good theoretical background !

It is mistake. This things cannot be solved this way !! If it is I wanna see proof.
You have to manipulate DE to become homogene and it is not LINEAR.

Dear snoopy.

The DE is seperable and the solution can be found in a straightforward way. No need to muddy the water with white noise.

I suggest you review the basic theory.

Dear mr fantastic

I would be very PLEASED if you calculate that DE and show it to me. However when you do any step of calculations I would be very happy to tell me from where it comes from and also any lemma, definition, statement and theorem you used to calculate that DE. That I very important in mathematics as you already know.

Good luck.

However I would be very PLEASED if you exact solution of this DE. Be careful when you want so something proof: conclamation on definitions, lemmas and theorems. As you already know that the proof is the most important and it count everything.

Good luck
