The first and second conditions agree in giving p = -1, and from the second and third we find and the equation is then reduced to dx ? (15) If m = dx a'd.x r2 in which the variables are separated. The integral is ab + 2 ab Ce * x + b*x* y 1 and in this equation making (m + 3) **+ d.r = dv, and for 6 n, m + 3 m + 3 m + 3 it is reduced to du + Biu' dv = a’u" dv, which is similar to the proposed equation, and is therefore integrable if n= - 4, or m = - - g. If n be not equal to - 4, we may transform this equation by the same assumptions as before, when we shall obtain an equation of the form du' + B'? u’ dv' = a?o'"'do', which is integrable if n' = – 4, furnishing a corresponding value for m. In this way we may proceed, continually transforming the equation and finding values of m which render Riccati's equation integrable. It will be found that these values are included in the formula m = 9 1 1 2 r. p being an integer. Another series of values for m may be found by making in the original equation, when it becomes du + a' uox" dx = 6dx ; a n, m + 1 du + Biu'dv = a'u" dv, which is similar to the proposed equation and integrable if 4r n be of the form that is, if 2r m 20° +1 = 0, m + 1 we find or m + 1 2r 1' 2r + 1 Hence all the values of m are included in the formula (18) The equation dy + ay" r" dx + br." y dr = 0 can be made homogeneous if (p + 1) (1 - 9) = (m + 1) (1 – n), by the assumption P+1 I-n m +1 or There is an exception to this if n = 1 and q = 1; but in this case the equation becomes dy + y (a XP + 6.2") dx = 0, in which the variables are already separated. dy dx a +6 + e = 0.

Equations of the form are to be resolved (when possible) into the simple factors dy U, 0; \dx and each of these is to be integrated separately. Any one of these integrals, or the product of any number of them, will be an integral of the proposed equation. dy 2 y = (1) Let a” = 0. dy a = 0, + Q = 0; dx dx therefore y = ax + C, a x + C12 are both integrals : also (y a X – c) (y + ax – C) = 0.
