Re: Need Help: 1st order nonlinear differential equation


Sorry, after I solved the problems with the format of the posting I
became aware that there is a typo in the restriction. This should
read:

1 >= a >= 0 && n > 2 && Z >= 0 && 1 > \[Delta] > 0 && 1 > \[Rho] > 0
&& 0 < r < n/(-2 + n)

Please ignore the term 1 > r > 0 in the previous posting. It creates
inconsistencies. Moreover, please consider Z>=0 instead of Z>0.

It was very early in the morning when I prepared the original message
to get help. Please excuse the shortcomings in the posting, there is
no other typo left.
