    Solve the following ODE .. #1

    Hello

    I stopped at this one :S

    \dfrac{dy}{dx}=x^2+y^2

    How to solve this one ?!!!

    What I know:
    Exact / Separable / Homogeneous
    All of them are failed

    am thinking about substituting t=x^2+y^2

    But those squares make my life hard

    If it is x+y it would be easy ..

    Oh my god !!
    So the differential equations are the same as the integrals
    Sometimes its impossible to solve it ??

    So the differential equations are the same as the integrals.
    Not quite sure what you mean here. The solution to any differential equation is obtained essentially by integrating. In addition, you can usually (perhaps always?) convert a DE into an equivalent integral equation if you wish. Integral equations have technical advantages over differential equations, especially with regard to the space of functions you consider for solutions (no differentiability required!)

    Sometimes its impossible to solve it?
    Sometimes an analytical solution is not known. That might not mean that it's impossible to solve, just that we don't know what the solution is. In those cases, we usually hand it off to a computer.

    If you let

    y = - \dfrac{u'}{u}

    then your equation becomes

    u'' + x^2 u = 0

    which is linear and can be solved in terms of Bessel functions.
