Recasting Nonlinear Differential Equations as S-Systems : A Canonical Nonlinear Form

  title={Recasting Nonlinear Differential Equations as S-Systems : A Canonical Nonlinear Form},
  author={Michael and A. SAVAGEAU and Eberhard and 0. and Voit},
An enormous variety of nonlinear differential equations and functions have been recast exactly in the canonical form called an S-system. This is a system of nonlinear ordinary differential equations, each with the same structure: the change in a variable is equal to a difference of products of power-law functions. We review the development of S-systems, prove that the minimum for the range of equations that can be recast as S-systems consists of all equations composed of elementary functions… CONTINUE READING
