When dealing with Abel's formula for the wronskian of a second order ODE:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex] W(R)=Ce^{-\int p_1(R)dR}[/tex]

and assuming that you don't know the homogeneous solutions but you know their asymptotic behavior at infinity and at the origin, how is the constant C calculated?

Thanks.
