page 179 —————————————————————————— CHAPTER 5. —— .
Setting the coefficients equal to zero, we obtain , , and ,
Observe that for
two, we also have and
for . , we obtain
. Since the indices differ by
. Therefore the general solution is a polynomial
. Hence the linearly independent solutions are
and
10. Let .
. Then Substitution into the ODE results in First write
.
It follows that
.
We obtain , and
, . Note that for
,
. Since the indices differ by two, we also have
. On the other hand, for
, for Therefore the general solution is
