### Using Euler's relation to transform to cosine

input is $f_2(t) = Acos(w_0 t + \phi)$ output $y_2(t)$ is $\frac{A}{2} e^{j \phi} H(jw_0) e^{jw_0 t} + \frac{A}{2} e^{-j \phi} H(-jw_0) e^{jw_0 t}$ okay so I need the step in between, how were the ...

### How to rewrite a 2nd order nonlinear ODE into an initial value problem of first order?

I am trying to rewrite the initial value problem $x''(t) = -sin(x(t))$ with initial values $x(0)= \pi/2$ and $x'(0) = 0$ into and initial value problem of first order ODE system. Later I will have ...

### Numerical Solution for ODE with a squared term inhibiting use of Euler's Method

I have this ODE: $$A(x)\ddot{x}+B(x)\dot{x}^2+C(x) = 0$$ $A,B,C$ are functions of $x(t)$. Usually I'd solve this numerically using Euler's method but in this case the $\dot{x}^2$ is giving me ...

### What is meant by Adams Bashforth being a “boot strap” method?

People seem to say that the Adams-Bashforth method requires some "boot strapping" because it needs two initial conditions: $y_{n+1}=y_n+\frac{\Delta t}{2}[3f(t_n,y_n) - f(t_{n-1}, y_{n-1})]$ I ...
