# RE: Differential Equation evaluation
Your equation seems to lead to a solution that in many cases tends to
infinity at the infinity, so it is very unlikely you can set a
condition like f'[Infinity]==0
2 eq = ((f')')'[x] + f[x] f'[x] +
1 - f'[x] == 0 DSolve[eq, f, x]
bc0 = f[0] == 1 && f'[0] == 1 && (f')'[0] == 1 sol = NDSolve[eq && bc0,
f, {x, 0, 30}, MaxSteps -> 100000] g = f /. sol[[1,1]]
Plot[g[u], {u, 0, 30}]
Hope this helps,

Objet: [mg11085] Differential Equation evaluation
Hi, I am new to Mathematica and just bought verison 3.0, I am trying to
solve a differential equation of the form:
F''' + F*F' + 1 - (F')^2 == 0
with boundry conditions for F, F', F'' at 0 and F' at infinity, is there
a way to handle this? When I try this, if I include that boundry
condition at infinity with the others, Mathematica tells me I have to
many constraints, if I leave it off I can solve it, if I leave off the
condition for F' at 0, it tells me it can't find the value of variable
at the variable at 0. So, my question, is how do I handle this in
Mathematica.
I have another general question about the system. I am using version
3.0 for Win95. Often, if I make a syntax error, Mathematica will print
me an error message but then I can't be certain that any subsequent
error messages are valid. The reason I say this is that I will find
my error, correct it and then I will get another error message upon
evaluation. After struggling with it for a while, I will close it and
re-enter and what gave me errors prior to re-entering, evaluate fine.
Is there some way to be sure that the errors are valid?
Thanks for all of your help.
