Chapter 5 Lecture 6 - Singular points 5.1 Radius of Convergence and Nearest Singular Points EG. 1: (1 + x 2 ) y 0 +2 xy 0 +4 x 2 y =0 . (1) If we were given y (0) = 0 and y 0 (0) = 1 then we would want a power series expansion of the form y = X n =0 c n x n about x 0 . (5.1) Roots of 1+ x 2 = 0 are x = ± i , so we expect the radius of convergence of the TS for 1 1+ x 2 to be 1 since 1 1+ x 2 =1 x 2 + x 4 1 lim ¯ ¯ ¯ a n +2 a n ¯ ¯ ¯ ρ . (5.2) (2) If we were given y (1) = 1, y 0 (1) = 0 then a power series expansion of the form c n ( x 1) n is required. In this case ρ = 2. EG. 2: ( x 1)(2 x 1) y 0 xy 0 2 y =0. x = 0 is an ordinary point. x = 1 and x = 1 2 are singular points. One solution of this equation is y ( x )= 1 x 1 = (1 + x + x 2 + ··· ) ρ . (5.3) 31
