(for any constant k) If it has a solution which depends on all the parameters say Y , How can we find the initial value problem satisfied by the partial derivatives of Y (assume that all are exist) with respect to each of the parameters k,x,x0,a,b ? solution: I know that I can transfer the above DE to a system of first order DE, but does that help?? Thanks
