Main Article Content
In this unit solutions of linear differential equations by power series are discussed. Power series method is particularly applicable to solving differential equations with variable coefficients, where some of the methods discussed in the previous units may not work .In this learning activity two methods are discussed: the method of successive differentiation and the method of undetermined coefficients. The technique of power series to solving differential equations requires some background knowledge of special functions of power series such as Taylor’s series.
