hello,

i would please like your thoughts on the following:

..............(y/5)-1,... y>=0

dy/dx = ........................,y(0)=2, y(x) in C_0[0,inf)

..............(-y/5)-1,... y<0

i am inclined to say this is an initial value problem becuase its to first order and the single condition is (obviously) defined at one (and the same) point, however the initilal condition is only valid for the first equation y'-y/5 -1 so that makes me think twice...

thanks
