Eigenvalues of D.E

  1. Sep 22, 2010 #1
    Hi guys,

    Can someone please explain how you find the eigenvalues of this type?

    [itex]u''+\lambda u =0[/itex]

    or point me to some decent literature?

    regards
    Brendan

    It's a second order, homogenous ODE, see if knowing the name helps you find the method. If not, I'll help more.
