Solving Exact ODEs Description

 • The general form of the exact ODE is given by:
 > exact_ode := D(C)(x,y(x))*diff(y(x),x)+D(C)(x,y(x))=0;
 ${\mathrm{exact_ode}}{≔}{{\mathrm{D}}}_{{2}}{}\left({C}\right){}\left({x}{,}{y}{}\left({x}\right)\right){}\left(\frac{{ⅆ}}{{ⅆ}{x}}\phantom{\rule[-0.0ex]{0.4em}{0.0ex}}{y}{}\left({x}\right)\right){+}{{\mathrm{D}}}_{{1}}{}\left({C}\right){}\left({x}{,}{y}{}\left({x}\right)\right){=}{0}$ (1)
 where C is an arbitrary function of its arguments. See Kamke's book, p. 28. This type of ODE can be solved in a general manner by dsolve, and the infinitesimals can also be determined by symgen. Examples

 > $\mathrm{with}\left(\mathrm{DEtools},\mathrm{odeadvisor},\mathrm{symgen},\mathrm{symtest}\right)$
 $\left[{\mathrm{odeadvisor}}{,}{\mathrm{symgen}}{,}{\mathrm{symtest}}\right]$ (2)
 > $\mathrm{odeadvisor}\left(\mathrm{exact_ode}\right)$
 $\left[{\mathrm{_exact}}{,}\left[{\mathrm{_1st_order}}{,}{\mathrm{_with_symmetry_\left[F\left(x\right),G\left(y\right)\right]}}\right]\right]$ (3)
 > $\mathrm{ans}≔\mathrm{dsolve}\left(\mathrm{exact_ode}\right)$
 ${\mathrm{ans}}{≔}{C}{}\left({x}{,}{y}{}\left({x}\right)\right){+}\mathrm{c__1}{=}{0}$ (4)

Implicit or explicit results can be tested using odetest

 > $\mathrm{odetest}\left(\mathrm{ans},\mathrm{exact_ode}\right)$
 ${0}$ (5)

A pair of infinitesimals for exact_ode are given by

 > $\mathrm{sym}≔\mathrm{symgen}\left(\mathrm{exact_ode}\right)$
 ${\mathrm{sym}}{≔}\left[{\mathrm{_ξ}}{=}{0}{,}{\mathrm{_η}}{=}\frac{{1}}{\frac{{\partial }}{{\partial }{y}}\phantom{\rule[-0.0ex]{0.4em}{0.0ex}}{C}{}\left({x}{,}{y}\right)}\right]$ (6)

Symmetries can be tested as well using symtest

 > $\mathrm{symtest}\left(\mathrm{sym},\mathrm{exact_ode}\right)$
 ${0}$ (7)
