→Existence and uniqueness of solutions

==Existence and uniqueness of solutions==

* [[Peano existence theorem]] guarantees the existence of a local solution to any initial value problem for an explicit first-order first-degree differential equation <math>\frac{dy}{dx} = G(x,y)</math> with initial value point <math>(x_0,y_0)</math> provided that <math>G</math> ~~and <math>\partial G/\partial y</math> are ~~is continuous ~~in an open rectangle containing the point~~.

* [[Picard-Lindelof theorem]] establishes existence and uniqueness under somewhat stronger continuity and differentiability assumptions.
