Unformatted text preview: 1 Solutions 99 . It follows that the Wronskian is zero for all
.
3. The condition that the coeﬃcient function
be nonzero in Theorem 4 and Proposition 6 is essential. Here the coeﬃcient function, ,
of
is zero at
, so Proposition 6 does not apply on
.
The largest open intervals on which
is nonzero are
and
. On each of these intervals
and
are linearly dependent.
4. Consider the cases
and
. The veriﬁcation is then straightforward.
5. Again the condition that the coeﬃcient function
be nonzero is
essential. The Uniqueness and Existence theorem does not apply. Section 4.3
