A differential equation is a mathematical equation that relates some function with its derivatives. In applications, the functions usually represent physical quantities, the derivatives represent their rates of change, and the equation defines a relationship between the two.

Because such relations are extremely common, differential equations play a prominent role in many disciplines including engineeringphysicseconomicsand biology. In pure mathematicsdifferential equations are studied from several different perspectives, mostly concerned with their solutions—the set of functions that satisfy the equation. Only the simplest differential equations are solvable by explicit formulas; however, some properties of solutions of a given differential equation may be determined without finding their exact form.

If a self-contained formula for the solution is not available, the solution may be numerically approximated using computers. The theory of dynamical systems puts emphasis on qualitative analysis of systems described by differential equations, while many numerical methods have been developed to determine solutions with a given degree of accuracy.

Differential equations first came into existence with the invention of calculus by Newton and Leibniz. In Chapter 2 of his work “Methodus fluxionum et Serierum Infinitarum”[1] Isaac Newton listed three kinds of differential equations:. He solves these examples and others using infinite series and discusses the non-uniqueness of solutions.

Jacob Bernoulli proposed the Bernoulli differential equation in Historically, the problem of a vibrating string such as that of a musical instrument was studied by Jean le Rond d’AlembertLeonhard EulerDaniel Bernoulliand Joseph-Louis Lagrange. The Euler—Lagrange equation was developed in the s by Euler and Lagrange in connection with their studies of the tautochrone problem.

This is the problem of determining a curve on which a weighted particle will fall to a fixed point in a fixed amount of time, independent of the starting point. Lagrange solved this problem in and sent the solution to Euler.

Both further developed Lagrange’s method and applied it to mechanicswhich led to the formulation of Lagrangian mechanics.

Contained in this book was Fourier’s proposal of his heat equation for conductive diffusion of heat. This partial differential equation is now taught to every student of mathematical physics.

For example, in classical mechanicsthe motion of a body is described by its position and velocity as the time value varies. Newton’s laws allow these variables to be expressed dynamically given the position, velocity, acceleration and various forces acting on the body as a differential equation for the unknown position of the body as a function of time.

In some cases, this differential equation called an equation of motion may be solved explicitly. An example of modelling a real world problem using differential equations is the determination of the velocity of a ball falling through the air, considering only gravity and air resistance. The ball’s acceleration towards the ground is the acceleration due to gravity minus the acceleration due to air resistance.

Gravity is considered constant, and air resistance may be modeled as proportional to the ball’s velocity. This means that the ball’s acceleration, which is a derivative of its velocity, depends on the velocity and the velocity depends on time.

Finding the velocity as a function of time involves solving a differential equation and verifying its validity. Differential equations can be divided into several types. Apart from describing the properties of the equation itself, these classes of differential equations can help inform the choice of approach to a solution.

Commonly used distinctions include whether the equation is: This list is far from exhaustive; there are many other properties and subclasses of differential equations which can be very useful in specific contexts. An ordinary differential equation ODE is an equation containing an unknown function of one real or complex variable xits derivatives, and some given functions of x. The unknown function is generally represented by a variable often denoted ywhich, therefore, depends on x.


Thus x is often called the independent variable of the equation. The term ” ordinary ” is used in contrast with the term partial differential equationwhich may be with respect to more than one independent variable. Linear differential equations are the differential equations that are linear in the unknown function and its derivatives.

Their theory is well developed, and, in many cases, one may express their solutions in terms of integrals.

Most ODEs that are encountered in physics are linear, and, therefore, most special functions may be defined as solutions of linear differential equations see Holonomic function. As, in general, the solutions of a differential equation cannot be expressed by a closed-form expressionnumerical methods are commonly used for solving differential equations on a computer.

A partial differential equation PDE is a differential equation that contains unknown multivariable functions and their partial derivatives. This is in contrast to ordinary differential equationswhich deal with functions of a single variable and their derivatives.

PDEs are used to formulate problems involving functions of several variables, and are either solved in closed form, or used to create a relevant computer model. PDEs can be used to describe a wide variety of phenomena in nature such as soundheatelectrostaticselectrodynamicsfluid flowelasticityor quantum mechanics. These seemingly distinct physical phenomena can be formalised similarly in terms of PDEs.

Just as ordinary differential equations often di;rima one-dimensional dynamical systemspartial differential equations often model multidimensional systems.

PDEs find their generalisation in stochastic partial differential equations. Dlprima are very few methods of solving nonlinear differential equations exactly; those that are known typically depend on the equation having particular symmetries. Nonlinear differential equations can exhibit very complicated behavior over extended time intervals, characteristic of chaos. Even the fundamental questions of existence, uniqueness, and extendability of solutions for nonlinear differential equations, and well-posedness of initial and boundary value problems for nonlinear PDEs are hard problems and their resolution in special cases is considered to be a significant advance in ecuacciones mathematical theory cf.

Navier—Stokes existence and smoothness. However, if the differential equation is a correctly formulated representation of a meaningful physical process, then one expects dkferenciales to have a solution. Linear differential equations frequently appear as approximations to nonlinear equations.

Boyce, DiPrima Textbooks

These approximations are only valid under restricted conditions. For example, the harmonic oscillator equation is ecuwciones approximation to the nonlinear pendulum equation that is valid for small amplitude oscillations see below. Differential dipirma are described by their order, determined by the term with the highest derivatives.

An equation containing only first derivatives is a first-order differential equationan equation containing the second derivative is a second-order differential equationand so diferencisles. Two broad classifications of both ordinary and partial differential equations consists of distinguishing between linear and nonlinear differential equations, and between homogeneous differential equations and inhomogeneous ones.

In the next group of examples, the unknown function u depends on two variables x and t or diprija and y. Solving differential equations is not like solving algebraic equations.

Not only are their solutions often unclear, but whether solutions are unique or exist at all are also notable subjects of interest. For first order initial value problems, the Peano existence theorem gives one set of circumstances in which a solution exists.

Diferenciale solution may not be unique. See Ordinary differential equation for other results. However, this only helps us with first order initial value problems.

Suppose we had a linear initial value problem of the nth order:. The theory of differential equations is closely related to the theory of difference equationsin which the coordinates assume only discrete values, and the relationship involves values of the unknown function or functions and values at nearby coordinates.

Many methods to compute numerical solutions of differential equations or study the properties of differential equations involve the approximation of the solution of a differential equation by the solution of a corresponding difference equation.

The study of differential equations is a wide field in pure and applied mathematicsphysicsand engineering. All of these disciplines are concerned with the properties of differential equations of various types. Pure mathematics focuses on the existence and uniqueness of solutions, while applied mathematics emphasizes the rigorous justification of the methods for approximating solutions.


Differential equations play an important role in modelling virtually every physical, technical, or biological process, from celestial motion, to bridge design, to interactions between neurons. Differential equations such as those used to solve real-life problems may not necessarily be directly solvable, i.

Instead, solutions can be approximated using numerical methods. Many fundamental laws of physics and chemistry can be formulated as differential equations. In biology and economicsdifferential equations are used to model the behavior of complex systems.

The mathematical theory of differential equations first developed together with the sciences where the equations had originated and where the results found application. However, diverse problems, sometimes originating in quite distinct scientific fields, may give rise to identical differential equations. Whenever this happens, mathematical theory behind the equations can be viewed as a unifying principle behind diverse phenomena. As an example, consider the propagation of light and sound in the atmosphere, and of waves on the surface of a pond.

All of them may be described by the same second-order partial differential equationthe wave equationwhich allows us to think of light and sound as forms of waves, much like familiar waves in the water. Conduction of heat, the theory of which was developed by Joseph Fourieris governed by another second-order partial differential equation, the heat equation.

It turns out that many diffusion processes, while seemingly different, are described by the same equation; the Black—Scholes equation in finance is, for instance, related to the heat equation. So long as the force acting on a particle is known, Newton’s second law is sufficient to describe the motion of a particle. Once independent relations for each force acting on a particle are available, they can be substituted into Newton’s second law to obtain an ordinary differential equationwhich is called the equation of motion.

Maxwell’s equations are a set of partial differential equations that, together with the Lorentz force law, form the foundation of classical electrodynamicsclassical opticsand electric circuits. These fields in turn underlie modern electrical and communications technologies. Maxwell’s equations describe how electric and magnetic fields are generated and altered by each other and by charges and currents.

They are named after the Scottish physicist and mathematician James Clerk Maxwellwho published an early form of those equations between and The Einstein field equations EFE; also known as “Einstein’s equations” are a set of ten partial differential equations in Albert Einstein ‘s general theory of relativity which describe the fundamental interaction of gravitation as a result of spacetime being curved by matter and energy.

It is not a simple algebraic equation, but in general a linear partial differential equationdescribing the time-evolution of the system’s wave function also called a “state function”. The Lotka—Volterra equationsalso known as the predator—prey equations, are a pair of first-order, non-lineardifferential equations frequently used to describe the population dynamics of two species that interact, one as a predator and the other as prey.

The rate law or rate equation for a chemical reaction is a differential equation that links the reaction rate with concentrations or pressures of reactants and constant parameters normally rate coefficients and partial reaction orders.
