Ricatti's equations. There's no much here. What have you done?

If we know a particular solution to the Riccati equation:

then we can obtain the general solution by making the substitution:

and obtain an easier first order equation:

Now, when I do that for the first one, I obtain the general solution for this equation:

.

Now, the interesting part I think, is back-substituting that solution into the original Riccati and verifying that it satisfies it. Forgive me if I'm a little lazy and just used Mathematica:

Code:`In[61]:=`

y[x_] := Sin[x] + 1/(c1*Exp[Cos[x]] -

Exp[Cos[x]]*Integrate[Exp[-Cos[x]],

x]);

FullSimplify[D[y[x], x] + Sin[x]*y[x] -

y[x]^2]

Out[62]= Cos[x]
