On Exact Solutions of Second Order Nonlinear Ordinary Differential Equations


In this paper, a new approach for solving the second order nonlinear ordinary differential equation y’’ + p(x; y)y’ = G(x; y) is considered. The results obtained by this approach are illustrated by examples and show that this method is powerful for this type of equations.
