% Forward Euler's method
% Example 1:  Approximate the solution to the initial-value problem
% dy/dt=e^t ; 0<=t<=2 ; y(0)=1;

% Example 2:  Approximate the solution to the initial-value problem
% dy/dt=y-t^2+1 ; 0<=t<=2 ; y(0)=0.5;

%f = @(t,y) (0*y+exp(t));   % Example 1
f = @(t,y) (y-t^2+1);      % Example 2
