Question: Solving a nonlinear differential equation?


I'm trying to solve a differential equation of the form y.y"+y'+y= { 1 for 0<x<1 and 0 for else } with conditions: y(0)=0 and y'(0)=1.

I wrote this:


Eq := y(x)*(diff(y(x), x, x))+diff(y(x), x)+y(x)-f(x);

ans := dsolve({Eq, y(0) = 0, (D(y))(0) = 1},numeric);

But it gives an error.

I also tried ODE tools>assistants>analyzer

It says: the ODE system does not contain derivatives of the unknown function heaviside.


It's the first time I use Maple and I don't know what to do. Need your help urgently. Thanks in advance.
