# Differential Equations

Differential equations are a special type of integration problem.

Here is a simple differential equation of the type that we met earlier in the Integration chapter:

(dy)/(dx)=x^2-3

We didn't call it a differential equation before, but it is one. We'll see several different types of differential equations in this chapter.

### Why are we doing this?

There are many applications of differential equations, including:

## In this Differential Equations Chapter

In this chapter we will learn about:

### Second Order Differential Equations

Before we see how to solve differential equations, let's see an example of them in action in the AIDS example.

## Problem Solver

This tool combines the power of mathematical computation engine that excels at solving mathematical formulas with the power of GPT large language models to parse and generate natural language. This creates math problem solver thats more accurate than ChatGPT, more flexible than a calculator, and faster answers than a human tutor.
