Bug in Homogeneous Solution of Differential equation?
Posted:
Mar 2, 2014 1:26 AM


I am using Mathematica V9.
When I solve "= dy/dt = ( y )/ (y  t) , y(0) = 1" (using the WA approach within Mathematica), I get the correct answer.
When I select "Solve as an exact equation" I also get the correct result.
However, when I select to solve as a homogeneous equation, it leave the constant and does not appear ro converge.
Is this a bug in stepbystep?
Thanks A
