# ordinary differential equations

Just a small comment. Strictly speaking, the equations

in the entry

$\dot{x} = f(x)$

$x(0) = x_0$

are not a ordinary differential equation. Only the first one is

a differential equation. The second equation is

an initial condition.

Therefore, it could maybe be better to write something

like

``.. Then there exists an a>0 such that the ordinary

differential equation

$$\dot{x} = f(x)$$

with the initial condition

$$x(0) = x_0$$

has a unique solution $x:[a,b]\to E$.''
