hi.

Is there something wrong in using the Frobenius method for regular singular point while solving Legendre's differential equation (expanding about x=0)?
Though the solution of Legendre Differential Equation here- http://mathworld.wolfram.com/Legendr...lEquation.html
uses the other form. But my book uses the Frobenius method for regular singular point..

( Forbenius method- http://mathworld.wolfram.com/FrobeniusMethod.html )

No, there is nothing at all wrong with that. But there are many different ways of solving the same differential equation.
