Abstract | Consider an autonomous ODE of the form F(y,y ′ ) = 0, where F is a bivariate polynomial. We can think of F as defining a plane algebraic curve. If this curve admits a rational parametrization, then we can determine whether the ODE has a rational general solution. Feng and Gao have described an algorithm for this problem, based on degree bounds for such parametrizations by Sendra and Winkler. Here we extend this investigation to the case of non-autonomous algebraic ODEs of the form F(x,y,y ′ ) = 0. The tri-variate polynomial F defines an algebraic surface, which we assume to admit a rational parametrization. Based on such a parametrization and on knowledge about a degree bound for rational solutions, we can determine the existence of a rational general solution, and, in the positive case, also compute one. This method depends crucially on the determination of rational invariant algebraic curves. We also relate rational general solutions of algebraic ODEs to rational first integrals.

ISSAC 1996 The problem An algebraic ordinary differential equation (AODE) is given by F(x,y,y ′,...,y (n) ) = 0, where F is a differential polynomial in K[x]{y} with K being a differential field and the derivation ′ being d dx. Such an AODE is autonomous iff F does not depend on x; i.e., F ∈ K{y}. The radical differential ideal {F} can be decomposed |

National Digital Library of India (NDLI) is a virtual repository of learning resources which is not just a repository with search/browse facilities but provides a host of services for the learner community. It is sponsored and mentored by Ministry of Education, Government of India, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT). Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI provides user group-specific services such as Examination Preparatory for School and College students and job aspirants. Services for Researchers and general learners are also provided. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for 10 most widely used Indian languages. It is built to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is designed to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is developed, operated and maintained from Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
