for this ODE- , do I need to use a Fresnel integral to solve it? or can it be simplified another way from the standard form y(t)=cexp(-I)? it can be expanded to the expression-

thanks very much!

Hey mathlover10.

You should be able to use an integrating factor or a simple separation of variables to solve this DE. - Apr 20th 2013, 10:52 PMJJacquelinRe: first order ODE, Fresnel integral?
Hi mathlover10 !

Any method used to solve the ODE will not change the result. If one method leads to a Fresnel integral, do not expect something else from another method.

If you don't want a closed form, such as a Fresnel integral, it's up to you to search an infinite series instead of.
