Summary: "Airy's equation x'' + xt =0 has solutions that traditionally are found just as infinite series, giving no good information on the behavior of solutions as t approaches infinity, or minus infinity. Guided by pictures of the solutions, we can (rigorously) answer these questions, without any analytic solving."
