I have some coupled nonlinear ordinary differential equations. Three equations have three 2nd order derivative coupled together. Can someone tell me how I can get the response
Another related approach is to isolate all the 2nd derivatives on the LHS and put everything else on the RHS. Then pick off the ...

how to use exp for this problem
You need to use the * operator to multiply in the denominator. E.g., w=exp(-(i-Un)^2/(2*sd^2)) If i is not a variable defined ...

ODE solver for restricted 3 body problem
In this line: dydt(2) = y(1) + 2 * dydt(3) - mu_p * ((y(1) + mu)/D1) - mu * ((y(1) - mu)/D2); you use dydt(3) before you set i...
