MATH 405: Sample 2nd Midterm Questions 1. Calculate the radius of convergence for the following functions X n =1 n 3 ( n + 1)! x n X m =1 (13 m )! ( m !) 4 x m 2. Evaluate the following Γ(6) / Γ(5) where Γ is the Gamma function. 3. Find a power series solution for the following equation 3 y 00 + (1 + x 3 ) y = 0 4. Laplace’s equation 2 φ = 0 in cylindrical coordinates for φ = φ ( r, θ ) can be written as 2 φ ∂r 2 + 1 r ∂φ ∂r + 1 r 2 2 φ ∂θ 2 = 0 Using separation of variables ﬁnd the ODE for the radial dependence, and solve it. 5. Show that Bessel’s equation for ν = 0 (which has as solutions J 0 and Y 0 ) is a Sturm- Liouville equation. 6. The function xe x is neither even nor odd. Write it as the sum of an even and an odd
