You did not say what bug or with which version. Version 9 gives a correct

solution for t >= 0

$Version

"9.0 for Mac OS X x86 (64-bit) (January 24, 2013)"

sol = DSolve[

{u'[t] == 2*Sqrt[u[t]], u[0] == 0},

u[t], t][[1, 1]]

u[t] -> t^2

u'[t] == 2*Sqrt[u[t]] /.

NestList[D[#, t] &, sol, 1] //

Simplify[#, t >= 0] &

True

u[0] == 0 /. (sol /. t -> 0)

True

What alleged bug did you have in mind?

Did something not work as expected with Print in an earlier version. And why use print at all? Just the DSolve expression by itself will give the same output. In Mathematica 9.0.1, this is:

DSolve[{u'[t] == 2*Sqrt[u[t]], u[0] == 0}, u[t], t]

(* {{u[t]->t^2}} *)

which, of course, is valid only for t >= 0.

I don't see any evidence of a bug

What bug? The solution is all right, ain't it? (V.9.0.1)

sol=DSolve[{u'[t]==2*Sqrt[u[t]],u[0]==0},u[t],t]; Print[sol]

{{u[t]->t^2}}

Of course, you must delete the last semicolon in the input cell if you want to see the solution printed.

First, all the best to one of the most influential mechanics teacher of our

time, I'm glad to give this minor help :)

Bug doesn't seem fixed

sol = DSolve[{u'[t] == 2*Sqrt[u[t]], u[0] == 0}, u[t], t]; Print[sol];

{{u[t]->t^2}}

u=t=0 is a fixed branch point. Two solutions: u=0 and u=t^2.

DSolve only returns the latter.

I can give other examples if interested.
