I think I found another problem with odetest. When solution is implicit, it fails to verify the solution against the ode when adding the IC. (not everytime, but in some cases).

But it does verify the solution against the ode when IC is not given. I give 3 examples. Also at bottom is worksheet of all of this.

**Example 1**

restart;
ode:=diff(y(x), x) = sin(y(x));
ic:=y(0)=Pi/2;
mysol:=ln(tan(y(x)/2))=x;

It says solution satisfies the ode itself OK

odetest(mysol,ode);

gives **0**

But adding IC now gives

odetest(mysol,[ode,ic]);

Which I am having hard time reading. Is it now saying the solution does not satisfy the ode or the IC? Both are supposed to be zero.

Are these not supposed to be in same order given? so it looks like if we go left to right, it is saying the solution do not satisfy the ode now but it does satisfy the IC. Right?

But before it said the solution satisfies the ode.

Also, we can see the IC is satisfied. Let do it by hand

eval(mysol,[y(x)=Pi/2,x=0])

**0 = 0**

So why does it say solution satisfies the ode first, then when adding the IC, now it changed its mind?

Also, solving for y(x) from the implicit solution, now it verifies it OK with the IC also:

ode:=diff(y(x), x) = sin(y(x));
ic:=y(0)=Pi/2;
mysol:=ln(tan(y(x)/2))=x;
mysol_explicit:=solve(mysol,y(x));
odetest(y(x)=mysol_explicit,[ode,ic])

**[0, 0]**

You see. Same solution. But different result from odetest depending if it is implicit or explicit.

Is this supposed to happen or is this a bug in odetest I should report? odetest is supposed to handle both explicit and implicit solutions. I know my solutions are correct. I just use odetest for verification. I also plotted my solution against maple's solutions and they are exact match.

**Example 2**

ode:=diff(y(x),x)=1+y(x)^2;
mysol:=arctan(y(x))=x;
ic:=y(0)=0;
odetest(mysol,ode);
odetest(mysol,[ode,ic]);

Gives **0** for the first call to odetest but gives **[diff(y(x), x) - 1 - y(x)^2, 0] **for the second call.

Changing the solution to explicit. now it verifies it

mysol_explicit:=solve(mysol,y(x));
odetest(y(x)=mysol_explicit,[ode,ic]);

Now it gives **[0,0]**

**Example 3**

ode:=diff(y(x), x) - 2*y(x) = 2*sqrt(y(x));
ic:=y(0)=1;
mysol:=ln(sqrt(y(x))+1)=x+ln(2);
odetest(mysol,ode);
odetest(mysol,[ode,ic]) assuming positive;

Gives **0 **for the first call but ** [diff(y(x), x) - 2*y(x) - 2*sqrt(y(x)), 0]** but when using explicit it now verifies OK

mysol_explicit:=solve(mysol,y(x));
odetest(y(x)=mysol_explicit,[ode,ic]) assuming positive;

**[0, 0]**
