can anyone help what is wrong? On version 7 I enter DSolve[{y'[x]==.02*y[x]-y[x]^2,y[0]==a},y[x],x] and get During evaluation of In[58]:= Solve::ifun: Inverse functions are being used by Solve, so some solutions may not be found; use Reduce for complete solution information. >> During evaluation of In[58]:= Solve::ifun: Inverse functions are being used by Solve, so some solutions may not be found; use Reduce for complete solution information. >> During evaluation of In[58]:= DSolve::bvnul: For some branches of the general solution, the given boundary conditions lead to an empty solution. >>
