Problem 51387. Solve an ODE: second-order linear equation with constant coefficients
Write a function to solve a second-order linear ordinary differential equation with constant coefficients a, b, and c:
with two of the three conditions: (1) , (2) , and (3) . Two of the three elements of the vector bc will be assigned numerical values, and the third will be NaN. The function should return the values of y at the specified values of x.
Equations of this form appear in many applications, such as spring-mass-damper systems, RLC circuits, small-amplitude oscillations of a pendulum, and steady advection, dispersion, and decay of a contaminant in a river or groundwater.
