Unhappy Please enlighten me.

Hello Redeemer,

I got stuck at $\displaystyle (d^4y/dx^4)+3(d^2y/dx^2)^5+5y=0$.

I'm not sure what method I should do.

Thanks a lot for your help.

Try$\displaystyle \;$ $\displaystyle y=e^{kx}$
Thanks from topsquark

The best I've come up with is y(x) = 0. You'll probably find that the solution(s) can only be found by numerical methods.

There was no method. I simply noted that y = 0 is a solution. It's one of the first things I look for, especially when dealing with a non-linear equation.

Was this an initial value problem? If so, please post the initial conditions. Thanks!
