##### Member level 1 I would like to solve a non-homogeneous differential equation with complex coefficient. The equation is in the form: where Jx is not a function of z and k, w, u are constants

##### Member level 1 Thanks for your replay Eduardo, can you send to me the method of solving?

##### Full Member level 5 My apologies for the k and z's forgotten in the previous message.

If Jx does not depend of z it can be treated as a constant in the differential equation, then the solution is the sum of one particular solution

$E_{xp} = \frac{j \omega \mu\,J_x }{\sqrt{k}}$

plus the solution of the homogeneous

$E_{xh} = A\cos(\sqrt{k}z)+B\cos(\sqrt{k}z)$

$E_x = E_{xh} + E_{xp}$

##### Member level 1 you mean in this case that the imaginary part of the particular solution dosn't matter, does it?
i think when the right hand side of the particular solution is complex, the method of solving will be different, is it right??

CataM, Ex is differentiated with z , so why you write the solution as a function of x?
