Show that the Legendre equation as well as the Bessel equation for n=integer are Sturm Liouville equations and thus their solutions are orthogonal.

How I can proove that ..?

Yes ...

see . this is the form of Sturm Liouville

and this table help me

i found the mathematical explain for bessel .

but i don't know how i can prove thier solutions are orthogonal ..!

can you help me

Did you post the problem exactly? If so, as I interpret it, you do not need to prove that yourself. It is well known that the solutions to sturm-liouville problems are orthogonal and the proof can be found in any mathematical methods book.

i understand that hour before .. i wasn't have enough information about sturm-liouville

or maybe my brain stopped

thanks :)
