necessary. Use the calculator to solve for Y(s), by writing:
'X^2*Y-X*y0-y1+Y=(1/X)*EXP(-3*X)' ` 'Y' ISOL
The result is
To find the solution to the ODE, y(t), we need to use the inverse Laplace
transform, as follows:

ILAP
The result is
Thus, we write as the solution: y(t) = y
Check what the solution to the ODE would be if you use the function LDEC:
The result is:
Please notice that the variable X in this expression actually represents the
variable t in the original ODE, and that the variable ttt in this expression is a
dummy variable. Thus, the translation of the solution in paper may be written
as:
