## Simple differential equation [closed]

Hi all!

p' = ln(p)


It's very easy, sure, but I need help!

This is a "separation of variables" question as seen in all first courses on differential equations. In this case it leads to an integration which may not be soluble in "elementary" terms. – Robin Chapman May 29 2010 at 13:38
I suspect this is a homework problem... – Wadim Zudilin May 29 2010 at 13:42
I doubt this is homework (or if it is, whoever asked did not 'solve' it first) since the 'answer' involves the (functional) inverse of the exponential integral Ei. – Jacques Carette May 29 2010 at 14:27
