Picard's method does not solve first order differential equation?

I have the following first order differential equation $$x^\prime(t)=-(x(t))^2+2x(t),\quad t\geq 0,\quad x(0)=1$$ Now I want to obtain an approximation of $x(t)$ by using Picard's method. Then the ...

Definition of $\operatorname{Pic}^0(V)$ for $V$ a singular variety

How does one define the $\operatorname{Pic}^0(V)$ for $V$ being a singular, not necessarily normal variety? Until now the approach I found by searching Google is to prove that the Picard functor is ...

Is the Picard group computable by a computer algebra system?

My question is, as the title suggests: Given the defining ideal of a variety $X$ (over $\mathbb C$), can we compute $Pic(X)$ with a computer algebra system? Even if the answer is no in general, are ...

Convergence of the Picard sequence

Consider the Cauchy problem $$ \begin{cases} y'= \cos(y)=f(x,y)\\ y(0)=0 \end{cases} $$ The question is: Does the Picard sequence converge? My attempt: We have that $y_0=0$, $y_1(x)= x$, $y_2(x)=...

Picard group of a fibration

Assume that $X$ is a projective variety. Let $Pic(X)$ be its Picard group. Let $E$ be a vector bundle over $X$ say of rank $r$ (for example TX). What is the picard group of the total space of $E$? ...

Picard Iteration: Convergence of system [duplicate]

I want to prove that, for any $t$, a solution exists in the interval $[0,T]$, when $T>0$. $x'(t)=A(t)x(t)$ My question is quite similar to this one Picard iteration (general), but with one small ...

Solution of differential equation $x'=cos(x)$

Write out the Picard iteration scheme. If possible, find the solution. $x'=cos(x),x(0)=0$ I did the picard iterations but I don't know how to get the solution from this $$u_0=0,...,u_3=\int_0^tcos(...

Questions about the connected component of a relative Picard Scheme.

Let $X$ be a smooth, projective surface (i.e. $2$-dimensional connected variety) over $k=\mathbb{C}$. Denote by $\mathrm{Pic}_{X/k}$ the associated relative Picard scheme. We write $\mathrm{Pic}^0_{X/...

Picard group schemes of degree d

Let $C$ be a smooth curve. I know that $Pic^0(C)$, i.e. the Picard group of degree 0 line bundles on $C$, is isomorphic to the jacobian $J(C)$, so it is an abelian variety. My question is, what about $...
