If y is a function of x then  (d2y/dx2) + y.(dy/dx) = 0.  If x is a function of y , then what does the same differential equation become ?

Answers : (1)

Let us assume a solution of the original differential equation as:
Hence the given differential equation becomes:
a^{2}e^{ax}+ae^{2ax}=0 \Rightarrow e^{ax}=-a \Rightarrow y=\frac{logy}{x} \Rightarrow y^{1/y}=e^{x}

For x > 0 let f (x) = integration 1 to x ln(t)/1+t dt, find the function f(x) +f(1/x) and show that f(e)+f(1/e) =1/2 Hint : write f(x) and f(1/x) then use substitution to make their limits...
f(x) = (ln t)^2 / 2 f(x) = (ln x)^2/2 f(x) + f(1/x) = ln x^2 / 2 + (-ln x)^2 / 2 = lnx^2 = 2f(x) Thanks bharat bajaj askiitians faculty iit delhi
