Algorithms for Solving Linear Ordinary Differential Equations
The new domain of linear ordinary differential operators is presented and how it works in a few examples and in a very informal way the algebraic point of view dealing with ordinary differential equations is introduced.
A Polynomial Algorithm for Finding Rational General Solutions of First Order Autonomous Ordinary Differential Equations
: In this paper we give a necessary and sufficient condition for an algebraic ODE to have a rational type general solution. For first order autono9mous ODE F=0, we give an exact degree bound for its
Algorithms for Solving Linear Differential Equations with Rational Function Coefficients
This thesis introduces two new algorithms to find hypergeometric solutions of second order regular singular differential operators with rational function or polynomial coefficients. Algorithm 3.2.1
Rational general solutions of algebraic ordinary differential equations
An algorithm to compute a rational general solution if it exists is given based on the relation between rational solutions of the first order ODE and rational parametrizations of the plane algebraic curve defined by thefirst order ODR and Padé approximants.
Algebraic general solutions of algebraic ordinary differential equations
For a first order autonomous ODE, the optimal bound for the degree of its algebraic general solutions is given and a polynomial-time algorithm to compute an algebraicgeneral solution if it exists is given.
