High-order differential equations often arise from mathematical modeling of a variety of physical phenomena. For example, higher even-order differential equations may appear in astrophysics, structural mechanics and geophysics, and higher odd-order differential equations, such as the Korteweg-de Vries (KdV) equation, are routinely used in modeling nonlinear waves and nonlinear optics.
