comment 2. Differential equation with initial condition
$\int(y-1)^{-1}\;dy\neq\ln(y-1)$ without further specifying $y$. Note that with $y=-3$ we get $\ln(-4)$ which is undefined.

comment When computing the CDF from a PDF, why is the integral bound a different variable? $F(x) =\int_{-\infty}^x f(t)\,dt$
The properties of a function remain the same whether you use $t,x,y,\alpha,u,etc.$ as the name for the dependent variable. It is strictly a matter of choice/convenience and to keep things clear for the exposition. $t$ in this case has nothing to do with time.

comment Evaluating $ \sum\frac{1}{1+n^2+n^4} $
What do you mean evaluate? This sum has no easily attainable closed form, but it evidently converges by comparing to $a_{n}=n^{-2}.$ To get a sense of the challenges you face in evaluating this sum analytically, see math.stackexchange.com/questions/8337/… for the simpler case $\sum n^{-2}.$
