Linear Differential Equations of Order n

Part of the Universitext book series (UTX, volume 0)


In this chapter we are concerned with the nth-order linear differential equation
$$y^{(n)} + p_{n-1} (t)_y^{(n-1)} + \cdots + p_0 (t)y = h(t),$$
where we assume pi : I → \(\mathbb {R} \) is continuous for 0 ≤ i ≤ n-1, and h : I → \(\mathbb {R} \) is continuous, where I is a subinterval of \(\mathbb {R} \).
