Homework Help: Differential equation Hermite polynomials

  1. May 22, 2007 #1
    I got a problem in quantum physics that i have come to a differential equation but I don't see how to solve it, its on the form
    F''(x)+(Cx^2+D)F(x)=0.
    How should I solve it?
    Thanks

    Isn't this the ODE for the Hermite polynomials ?

    yes it's. i tried to make a ansatz with hermite polynomials and it solved the equation.
