1. Introduction

The object of this work is to describe how to implement the differential transformation method (DTM) for finding exact and approximate solutions of the second-order random differential equations. To this end, the second-order random differential equations and the concept of the differential transformation method are presented in Section 2. In Section 3, we consider the statistical functions of the mean square solution of the second- order random differential equation. Section 4 is devoted to numerical examples.

2. Differential Transform Method

The differential transform method (DTM) has been used by Zhou [15] . This method is effective to obtain exact and approximate solutions of linear and nonlinear differential equations. To describe the basic ideas of DTM, we consider the second order random differential equation,

source in homogeneos term, and and are random variables.

We now write the differential transform of function as

In keeping with Equations (3) and (4), let, and, respectively, are the transformed functions of, and. The fundamental mathematical operations of differential transformation are listed in the following table.

3. Statistical Functions of the Mean Square Solution

Before proceeding to find the computation of the main statistical functions of the mean square solution of Equations (1) and (2) we briefly clarify some concept, notation, and results belonging to the so-called calculus. The reader is referred to the books by Soong [3] , Loeve [16] , and Wong and Hajek [17] . Throughout the paper,

we deal with the triplet Probabilistic space. Thus, suppose is the set of second

order random variables. Then the random variable, if, where is an expectation operator. The norm on is denoted by. For example, for the random variable X we define

, in such way that is a Banach space. In addition, let T (real interval) represent

the space of times, we say that is a second order stochastic process, if the random variable for each.

A sequence of second order random variables converges to, if

To proceed from (4), we truncate the expansion of at the term as follows

differential Equations (1)-(2) with coefficients which depend on a random variable A which has been assumed to be independent of the random initial conditions and. This includes the computation of approximations of the mean and variance functions to the random solution. These approximations not only agree but also improve those provided by the Adomian Decomposition Method [12] , Variational Iteration Method [13] and Homotopy Perturbation Method [14] as we have illustrated through different examples. Otherwise, the differential transform method is very effective and powerful tools for the second-order random differential equation because it is a direct way without using linearization, perturbation or restrictive assumptions.
