If you try to get the airy equation or:
desolve(y''-xy=0,y) for example, you'll get a solution that has G_1 and G_0 in the answer.
Are these intended to indicate "some constant"?
Thanks in advance

They are the arbitrary constants that occur when solving the ODE.

They are not G0, G1 and so on since those are the reserve graphic object variables. G0 specifically is the live screen buffer.

I'm coming to the party a little late on this one, but my resources all use c, or c1, or c2, etc., for the arbitrary constant. G_0 is visually confusing compared to what I normally encounter.
Did you feel that G_0, was less likely to already be used than c, which might have already been used in a program, for example?

Here is an example: (simplify set to 'none')

Code:
desolve((y') = (x*y/(x^2+1)),y)

result: (G_0*x^2+G_0)/(sqrt(x^2+1))

Simplifying makes it a little clearer, but G-0 versus c, makes it less so, (to me, anyway).

Code:
simplify(desolve((y') = (x*y/(x^2+1)),y))
result: G_0*sqrt(x^2+1)
