Functional differential equation.

1 Name: Anonymous 2021-04-17 07:17
Let's see who is actually smart on /prog/, find a general solution to this functional differential equation.

f ''(x) = f(f(x)) and there are general solutions

In other words find a function whose 2nd derivative is equal to the same function evaluated at all the points that make that function up.

For example f(f(x)) = ? when f(x) = x^2
is for x=2 ----> f(f(4)) ----> f(4) = 16 ----> f(16) = 256 and this has to be equal to its 2nd derivative
