Happens that D isn't a number for I say that |D| is less or greater than 1. So, how can I interprate this form of solution correctly? PS, this ideia from Operational Calculus: https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transf...hist.C3.B3rica Heaviside’s Operational Calculus | Rip's Applied Mathematics Blog

You can't leave it with nothing to operate on. If I were solving that with a series, I'd say $Dy(x) = y(x) - f(x)$ and then crreate a Taylor series. Of course, this relies on having an initial condition. Then $y(x) = y(0) + Dy(0)x + \cdots = y(0) + (y(0) - f(0)x + \cdots$ We can get $D^2y(x)$ and higher orders by differentiating the equation for $Dy(x)$. Edit: having browsed the blog, I think I've seen something similar before. I would rather understand why it works than the approach seen there, where it seems to for my functions, so lets say it's right. Last edited by v8archie; May 10th, 2014 at 11:49 AM.

Now the ideia is expand the fraction $\displaystyle \frac{1}{1-D}$ with $\displaystyle \frac{1}{1-D}=\sum_{0}^{\infty}D^n \Delta n$ or with $\displaystyle \frac{1}{1-D} = -\sum_{-\infty}^{-1} D^n \Delta n$...
