Math 334 Lecture #22 § 5.3: Power Series Solutions, Part II Representation Principle. When can a general solution of y + p ( x ) y + q ( x ) y = 0 be represented by power series? If p ( x ) and q ( x ) are analytic at x 0 , then the general solution of the ODE is y = n =0 a n ( x - x 0 ) n = a 0 y 1 ( x ) + a 1 y 2 ( x ) , where y 1 and y 2 are linearly independent power series solutions each analytic at x 0 with a radius of convergence at least as large as the smallest of the radii of convergence of the power series expansions for p and q about x 0 . [Recall that a function is analytic about x 0 if it has a power series expansion about x 0 with a positive radius of convergence that equals the function on the interval of convergence.] The power series solutions y 1 and y 2 are solutions of the IVPS with initial conditions y 1 ( x 0 ) = 1 , y 1 ( x 0 ) = 0 , and y 2 ( x 0 ) = 0 , y 2 ( x 0 ) = 1 . The Wronskian of y 1 and y 2 at x = x 0 is 1, so that y 1 and y 2 are indeed linearly independent on the interval of convergence.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
