# Types of solutions of differential equations

## Abstract

This chapter deals with several aspects of differential equations relating to *types of solutions* (complete, general, particular, and singular integrals or solutions), as opposed to *methods of solution*. That is, the subject here is not so much the processes for solving differential equations, as the conceptions about what kind of object a final solution might be. For this reason, the word “solution” will be used here in the sense of *answer*, but not in the sense of *process for obtaining an answer*.
