You mean that 4th-order differential equation and its solution?
The obtention of the differential equation is a very trivial problem of
circuit analysis.
The exact analytic solution can be calculated without great problems
(very easily with a symbolic analysis program), but is rather complex.
What is usually seen are approximations for low-loss cases, much
simpler.
I implemented the exact solution in my TeslaSim program.

I have also derived the exact solution for a magnifier, but didn't
implement it directly in the program yet. This 6th-order system
has no analytic solution, but precise numerical solutions are easy
to obtain.
