Re: Differential equation


***You have one differentai equation for two dependent variables.
***You need one more equation.

diff=x[t]-A*D[y[t],t]==0;

DSolve[diff,{x[t],y[t]},t]
DSolve::underdet: The system has more dependent variables than
equations, so is underdetermined. Moreâ?¦
DSolve[x[t] - A*Derivative[1][y][t] == 0, {x[t], y[t]}, t]

***But e.g.

diff1=x[t]-A*D[y[t],t]==0;
diff2=D[x[t],t]+y[t]==2;

DSolve[{diff1,diff2},{x[t],y[t]},t]
{{y[t] -> C[1]*Cos[t/Sqrt[A]] + 2*Cos[t/Sqrt[A]]^2 +
(C[2]*Sin[t/Sqrt[A]])/Sqrt[A] + 2*Sin[t/Sqrt[A]]^2, x[t] ->
C[2]*Cos[t/Sqrt[A]] - Sqrt[A]*C[1]*Sin[t/Sqrt[A]]}}

***Cheers
