Homework Help: Differential Equation

  1. Apr 29, 2010 #1
    Stumbled upon

    d^2u/dp^2=p^2 u.

    I know the answer, however I can not figure out how to solve this. Any ideas at to which method to try?

    I haven't actually tried it, but my first guess would be a series solution. You might get some kind of Bessel function.
