Let f ( x )= x on the interval 0 <x< π . (a) Sketch the even and odd periodic extension of f with period 2 π .

Consider the second order di f erential equation: Ly = 2 x 2 y 00 + 3 xy − (1 + x 2 ) y = 0 (1) (a) Classify the points x ≥ (do not include the point at in f nity) as ordinary points, regular singular points, or irregular singular points. [5 marks] (b) Use the appropriate series expansion about the point x = 0 to determine two independent solutions to (1). You only need to determine the f rst three non-zero terms in each case.
