Consider the differential equation $y^{\prime}=y-2$ with initial condition $y\left(0\right)=1$.

a) Use Euler's method with 4 steps of size 0.2 to estimate $y\left(0.8\right)$

I know how to do this by hand; however, I have maple 12 installed and was trying to figure out how to do this with Maple, and then make a graph showing each step of the function. Any suggestions. I have tried looking on mapleprimes, but it keeps pointing me to functions for newer versions of maplesoft, which I don't have.

I posted this question to use as a model, because I have solved this problem by hand and it will help me edited it for other differential equations.

ps. I hope this is the proper place to ask this question, if not please tell me where would be a better place.

maybe this would help ,just change initially condition and step size http://homepages.math.uic.edu/~hanson/MAPLE/euler.html

i am not sure that is is for maple12,but i think commands would be same,just try it and if there is errors,post here use also

  • $\begingroup$ yea, it failed on dsolve. going to check the help and post it on stackoverflow/questions. Thanks for your reference. $\endgroup$ – yiyi Apr 7 '13 at 8:54

    $\begingroup$ so it means that some commands are basicaly changed or maybe some errors on site,good lucks my friend $\endgroup$ – dato datuashvili Apr 7 '13 at 8:55

I have found the answer. Lesson 14: Euler's Method
